I am a regular reader of Stepcase Lifehack. I appreciate the variety of ideas they discuss and often enjoy attempting to heed their advice. Although the content usually has little to do with My Life with Fibro, last Tuesday they featured an article of particular interest to me by fitness coach, Jamie Nischan.
Nischan’s article closely echoes the advice I received during one of my recent trips to my chiropractor, Dr. Delilah. He highlights body-friendly postures for driving, working, and sleeping and does a good job reminding you that the little things do, indeed, matter.
Before I left on vacation, Dr. Delilah strongly recommended I pay close attention to my posture. She reminded me of the power seemingly small habits have to create muscle tension and pain. She also reminded me how simple it can be to develop good habits and counteract and/or erase bad habits.
My sleep posture seems in line with the advice of both my chiropractor, and Jamie. But my posture behind the wheel and at my desk need serious improvement. In fact, my chiropractor believes my recent severe back pain can be lessened as I grow more aware of, and improve my driving posture.
Please give Nischan’s article a read, and let me know what you think. And remember, don’t get overwhelmed.
I’m pretty sure being aware of your posture is the bulk of the battle.
I look forward to your feedback.
