POSTURE, POSTURE, POSTURE! If you don’t have time to hit the gym or your hectic work life keeps you tied up late, this is a great exercise to cue your postural awareness and get some activity back into your life. It is difficult to realize just how poor our posture is and more importantly how to correct it. This is a great drill to do throughout the day to make the “invisible – visible”. You can do this whenever you hit a red light in your car, or whenever you take a break to check your phone at work?

Exercise

Start by sitting on anything really – car, chair, couch, etc. Pull your shoulder blades together and down, and hold this position. Now, pull your neck back to meet your shoulders and hold here.

Time

Hold this position for 5 seconds. Now, relax and repeat. Remember, this is the “Rule of 5” so you are going to do this 5 times, for 5 sec holds, and repeat it 5 times throughout the day!
