How often do you check over your body to see how you’re standing, sitting or moving around? For most of us the answer is probably ‘rarely’. Many of us take our bodies for granted, averting our eyes from our posture and how it might be affecting our health. But the truth is, correct posture doesn’t only make our bodies feel good, it boosts confidence and makes us feel great all round. That’s why it’s at the core of my Bodylogiq approach.
One thing I see a lot is people who genuinely can no longer stand up straight. This is quite shocking. Often, years of slouching or sitting at a computer has put their joints, tendons and ligaments so out of alignment that they’re physically incapable of standing correctly.
This is sometimes caused by an injury whereby a limp or other discomfort has a knock-on effect and all the joints end up compensating for one another, causing more pain as everything moves out of alignment.
