Let’s talk about how to make good posture a habit.
Freeze! How is your posture right now? Don’t move.
Are you slightly forward? Chin forward? Head forward? And, shoulders rounded? Most likely you’re somewhat like this.
So, let’s, right now, get into proper posture together.
- Lift at the sternum.
- Drop your shoulders.
- Pull your shoulder blades together, just slightly.
- Pull back your head so your ears are right over your shoulders. And your shoulders are right over your hips.
- Elevate your head a bit.
Now, I want you to see if you can soften and relax in this position while maintaining your posture.
This is proper posture.
You may not be able to get into this exact position, but if you come close, that’s great. You’re lengthening those front muscles which over time will help you stay in proper posture, making good posture a habit.
I want you, today, to try every hour, on the hour, to get back into this posture if you’ve fallen out of it. Try to do this five days in a row.
If you can do this five days in a row, by the end of five days, your posture will have improved. And, you will have made good posture a habit.
Turn on this beautiful posture, try to relax in it, and try to rest it every hour, on the hour, if you’ve fallen out of it, for the week.
Give it a try. Let me know how you do in the comments below.
