Sit Better and Sit Less
It seems every time I write a post for this e-zine I return to issues around SSS.
We all know that our state of mind can affect our postures. When was the last time you saw someone who felt depressed or powerless and they adopted a slouched posture with their head hanging low? Or when was the last time you saw someone win a competition? They probably stood tall with pride; head held high (maybe with their arms raised to the sky and jumping about too!) This shows that our minds can change our postures.
“I think it’s muscular.” I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t hear this sentence by one of our patients, the inference being that what they are feeling is a muscular problem and implying that ‘adjusting the bones’ won’t have an impact on said problem.
These days we’re sitting more often and in most cases longer.
