Back straight, chin up, no slouching!
Your posture holds the key to how you walk, work, sit or sleep without pain. Our ancestors knew this quite well yet with more and more comforts invading our lives and most of our day spent infront of a flashing screen, your body takes quite a toll as a result of improper posture.
And while we’re talking about seated positions, let’s focus on an oft neglected region as well – Gluteus Maximus also known as our “Bums”.
‘Sitting on our asses’ is not just phrase but literally what we do during the day. However, most people still fail to understand that it is a muscle or concentrate on ways of strengthening and toning it.
Training your butt will not only make you look more svelte and improve your posture but can be vital in absorbing the weight of your body, thereby steering away the pressure from your lower back.
Healing Education’s September edition covers both the topics of posture and how to maintain them as well as different ways to tone and strengthen your glutes. Also in this issue is an exclusive coverage of the lower back and sciatica!
