Aunty’s computer posture – fix!
Aunty’s posture has been deteriorating – maybe because of entering the older lady phase of life, but maybe not.
TaiChi is helping with balance. Still, poor posture from sitting hours at the computer watching Korean dramas, blogging, inputting into Quickbooks, google searching, checking emails, etc. etc. etc. was taking its toll. Playing Kuku-Kube (thanks or No thanks to Jalna, lol) has really made Aunty sit transfixed for hours staring at computer screens.
Along comes a good AND EASY way to reverse and overcome poor posture with 3 simple to do exercises.
1. Maintain a tight core while walking or standing. Suck in that gut and keep your ears above your shoulders. (This makes clothing look great on us – especially that lumpy looking part under the boobs and above the waist.)
2. Backwards arm rolls with palms facing up. This one will really feel foreign – we don’t ever use this motion or direction, but it works!
3. Elbow pushing on a wall. Something like isometrics (remember those?) but easier. It is hard for Aunty to relax her neck, but Aunty will learn.
Thanks to the folks at Easy Health Options for this link to Dr. Brett Cardonick’s video demonstrating the exercises:
Look good, feel good! Or is it the other way around?
