Poor body posture isn’t a pretty sight and over time it can really start to wear you down. It turns out, your mom and teacher telling you to have good posture was good advice! These days, bad posture is getting worse and worse. Excess weight, excess texting, stress, and too much sitting are all contributors. Our back muscles are just naturally a little bit weaker. So how can we fix it?
Lay down on your stomach with your face down toward the floor. Slowly and gingerly lift the front part of your body with your head up. Lift as high as is comfortable; do not push it too hard. Keep your arms at your sides and hands on your hips. This exercise activates many tension-bearing back and leg muscles. Do this exercise for ten minutes.
Ten times is enough for the first time. Repeat this exercise daily and keep adding repetitions. Over time, your back will strengthen and straighten out. No more poor body posture!
