Practice good posture. “Sit up straight!” Who among us has never heard that from an adult during our childhood? Good posture allows the proper movement of our air, blood, energy throughout our bodies. It decreases strains and stresses on our joints and muscles and connective tissues. If you’ve been sloppy in your posture, or if you face medical or health issues that make is difficult, begin now to correct it as best you can. Keep it simple, keep it gentle. Do a search for gentle exercises for good posture if you are not sure what to do; and if you have health conditions to consider, be sure to speak with your doctor as well to ensure you are doing what is appropriate for your own body.
