Maintain Good Posture
Remember your mother’s advice about standing up straight? Using good posture allows you to breathe easier, be more comfortable and avoid back pain. Here are some good posture pointers:
–Do not arch your back or lean forward or backwards. This will put strain on the back muscles.
–Keep your eyes focused forward, not looking down, but rather 20 feet ahead.
–Reduce strain on your neck and back by keeping your chin parallel to the ground.
–Shrug once and let your shoulders fall and relax, with shoulders slightly back.
–Suck in your stomach.
–Tuck in your behind and rotate your hip forward slightly. This will keep you from arching your back.
