Making Up for Bad Health Habit

Bad Habit: Poor Posture
Misaligned posture can lead to back, knee, hip and neck issues as well as collapsed arches and a host of other problems. If you’ve had poor posture most of your life, you probably think there’s nothing you can do to improve it. Not true! You can make changes instantly, transform yourself and don't have to wait to see results.

This easy exercise to turn back years of bad posture habits: “Stand with your heels almost touching a wall. Roll your shoulder blades back and drop them down until they touch the wall. Slightly lower your chin and pull the base of your head against the wall, lengthening the back of your neck. Hold this position for 15 seconds, breathe, rest and repeat. If you cannot touch the wall, then your goal is to work up to it slowly.”
