The stand­ing pos­ture

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

When stand­ing still, look straight ahead with your feet 10cm apart. Stand as tall and re­laxed as pos­si­ble. Since the ad­vent of smart phones, the stand­ing pos­ture for many has re­ally gone down­hill as peo­ple are now look­ing down con­stantly at their phones. This pulls the neck for­ward, re­sult­ing in a hunch­back. Al­ways look ahead if you can.

You will in­stantly look and feel slim­mer as your lower and up­per back will lift and your shoul­ders will re­lax. This will re­duce strain through­out your spine, es­pe­cially your up­per

torso and neck.
