Posture Perfect: Exercise

Our modern day lifestyle contributes to positions of poor posture resulting in forward head posture, upper back humping, and low back rounding leading to decreased abdominal support and a belly. Today's exercise is so simple and effective and helps to reverse the bad posture and even improve things like digestions, blood flow and breathing. This information comes from the Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative in partnership with the Centre for Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation.


Instructions:

1. Sit comfortably on a hard chair or the edge of your couch or bed.

2. Sit up tall and lift up out of the low back.

3. Let your arms hang by your sides and reposition your shoulder blades backwards toward the spine (this should take minimal effort, and your shoulders should not lift upwards).

4. Gently lift the back of your skull upwards (resulting in a slight chin tuck).

5. Hold for 10 seconds and repeat as often as possible (every 10 minutes).

6. TIP: think about doing this in all positions (walking, sitting, standing) until it becomes habit that you don't even have to think about.
