There’s growing evidence that good posture contributes to a range of health benefits, from reducing back and joint pain to boosting mood. Health-care practitioners from physical therapists to surgeons to psychologists increasingly take posture into account when evaluating patients, and offer tips and tools for improvement.
Good posture doesn’t just mean standing with the shoulders thrown back. More important is maintaining good alignment, with ears over the shoulders, shoulders over hips, and hips over the knees and ankles. Body weight should be distributed evenly between the feet. Actually, you should be aware of your posture all the the day. How am I walking? Where are my feet pointing? Am I leaning forward? Are my ears over my shoulders? How long have I been sitting? You have to know what good posture is in order to correct your poor posture.
FOUNDATION TRAINING will teach you awareness of you posture and movement patters. FOUNDATION TRAINING will teach you to “feel” how you move your body. FOUNDATION TRAINING will correct a lot of poor posture issues.
We live in an electronic age…we have become trained to stare at a computer all day. Even I do it! I work all day in a dentist office at a computer. I come home and get on a computer to write these articles. Technology is awesome in a lot of ways, but it is killing us physically. We have got to change our ways! We have got to sit in better posture at our desks and, we have got to get up from the desks more often and align ourselves back up.
Good health is everything! Having good posture will help you have good health! Move those bodies, breathe deeply, stand tall, eat well, stretch and strengthen. Some things are out of our control…but working on your body is not. Take charge today!
