Dispelling the Myths About Poor Posture (And Your Poor Pelvis)
Poor posture is one of the most common problems in our society today. And it’s not just because of your boss staring at you all day long or your spouse constantly complaining about how bad your back hurts. No, poor posture is caused by many factors:
1) You’re too lazy to do anything about it.
2) You don’t have enough money to buy proper equipment.
3) You don’t exercise enough.
Well, I’m here to tell you that you needn’t worry anymore! There are some simple exercises that will make your life much easier and help you achieve better posture. Let me show you what I mean…
The first thing you need to do is get rid of any bad habits that might be holding you back from achieving good posture. For example, if you’ve been sitting hunched over with your legs splayed out like a fish out of water, then getting up and walking around would probably help a bit. If you sit on the toilet all day, then try squatting instead.
Another way to improve your posture is simply by moving around more often than not. I’m sure most of us can agree that sitting in a cubicle all day doesn’t exactly do wonders for your back. Try to take a walking break every hour or so.
If you can, go for a little walk outside or at least climb up and down a few flights of stairs.
Of course, you could just get off your duff and hit the gym! If you can afford it (or find a good deal on Groupon), I’d highly recommend joining a gym.
