8/24/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Tuesday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 25. August 2013 13:18


One simple fix on how to make yourself look thinner and more fit is to pay attention to your posture.  Proper posture can help boost your energy, help you breathe easier, and reduce stress.

When I was growing up I would find that when I didn’t sit up straight, my upper back region would go numb.  If I sat up straight, the numbness went away. Seems like a no brainer, but when your 13 it isn’t so easy.

My daughter, who has super long legs, and super bad posture (she and I are both hyper-mobile which seems to make good posture more of a challenge), looks 2 inches taller when she doesn’t hyper extend her knees the wrong direction and pulls her shoulders back (the same movement I made as a teenager).

Work on aligning your body to a neutral position and strengthening your core muscles.  Pilaties has helped me tremendously with this and it has helped me become more aware of my body and the way that I am standing.

Stand in front of a mirror and stand naturally, and really look to see if you are throwing your hips forward.  Give it a try and see if proper posture helps your over-all body shape.
