Maintaining Good Posture
Head up! Chin In! Shoulders back! It doesn’t seem like it would be a big deal to just maintain a straight and healthy posture…but it is! It’s so hard. Years of bad posturing habits now seem to be all we know. Those stooping shoulders took years to put in their place so it’s going to take some work to get them out of that position and back to where they should be. Here is a quick little test you can do to determine if you are in the poor posture camp!
- Stand with the back of your head against a wall, your heels about 6” from the wall. Your shoulders and buttocks should touch the wall.
- There should be less than 2” between your neck and the wall or the small of the back and the wall. If there is more than 2”, that’s a sign of poor posture.
