Straighten up! Enjoy Life!One of the common denominators of the young and healthy is the ability to be flexible and strong.
One of the characteristics of individuals as they get older and sicker is that they become less flexible, more rigid and weaker.
Flexibility and strength are a very interesting dual traits because we are born with them, and they can always be relearned. In our society, flexibility and strength equals youth and vitality.
By improving flexibility, posture automatically improves. Stretching daily allows the postural muscles to better handle the demands of daily living.
By improving strength, our musculature is better capable of supporting our spines and maintaning posture.
According to health educator Robert Cooper, “Posture is affected by, and affects, every aspect of our lives. Your state of nutrition, exercise, stress management, body fat control and mental development all depend on your posture. With good posture, exercise is more enjoyable, digestion improves, the mind is clearer, senses sharper and problems seem more manageable.”
Posture is one of the most overlooked secrets to better health and performance at any age. Posture is the window to your state of health. Every one of us has been told to sit up straight or stand tall by our mother while growing up. We would listen for the moment, than lapse into poor posture again.
The reason is simple: Poor posture is controlled by the proper alignment of your spinal column. A properly aligned spine will afford greater levels of flexibility needed for feelings of youth and vitality.
