They say you bounce when you walk. Your gait is bent. You are hunched over. You can’t even sit properly on a backless chair.
In addition to the tips I shared here, here are more steps towards achieving good posture and preventing back pain:
Raise your right arm to shoulder level in front of you and bend the arm at the elbow, keeping the forearm parallel to the floor.
Grasp the right elbow with your left hand and gently pull it across your chest so that you feel a stretch in the upper arm and shoulder on the right side.
Hold for 20 seconds; relax both arms. Repeat on the other side. Repeat three times on each side.
Stand facing the wall with your arms raised, hands flat against the wall, elbows at shoulder height.
Place one foot ahead of the other. Bending your forward knee, exhale as you lean your body toward the wall.
Keep your back straight and your chest and head up. You should feel a nice stretch across your chest. Hold this position for 20–30 seconds. Then relax.
Thank me later.
I love you, I love your health.
