This one bad habit is one of the worst destroyers of Beauty and Health…how you can correct it…
Never underestimate the Beauty and Health of Good Posture.
Poor posture sabotages your figure and health. It makes you look older, unglamorous, unhappy and tired, and it’s the first step toward dowager’s hump, double chin, pot belly and sway back. And that’s on the outside! Inside the body it can exacerbate varicose veins, pinched nerves and heart strain.
Put your body in alignment and things will begin to fall into place: flatter stomach, straighter back, buttocks tucked in more and a longer neck. And you’ll move more gracefully, too.
Here’s how to do it:
•Stand with feet a few inches apart, toes pointed straight ahead and arms hanging loosely at your sides.
•Distribute your weight evenly on both legs by pressing evenly on the balls of your feet. Tighten the muscles in the front of your thigh.
•Slowly draw the buttocks tightly together.
•Now, slowly stretch your spine upward while drawing your shoulder blades together. Take care not to lift your shoulders or tilt your chin.
Start each day by putting your body in alignment this way, until good posture is natural to you. It’s good to have a friend share this activity with you so you can check each other out.
Once again, good posture will help you look more glamorous…feel more alive – and, most of all, keep your body much healthier for your lifetime.
Wishing you a very long, healthy and beautiful life.
Until next time,
