May is Posture Month – Happy May Day

Part one: May you remember to use proper posture during posture month of May; because,

May is designated as Posture Month.

Therefore, we will do a desk work station check up this week. Let’s get started.

Is your computer at eye level?

Are you holding your phone at eye level?

Are your supplies and items you reach for throughout the day balanced left and right?

Are your elbows, hips and knees at ninety degrees or greater?

If you are having any discomfort, you may benefit from a self evaluation of your posture habits and work station.

This goes for all work related activity, whether you work at a desk or move around doing physical labor. I give extra points to the employers who rotate the employees work stations regularly to avoid overuse injuries.

When doing physical labor you need to support your back while bending and lifting. I know sometimes it is hard, if not nearly impossible; but, you still need to take care of your spine…as well as the rest of you.

Consequently, use the back brace as an assistive device when needed instead of consistently.

Furthermore, you need to pay attention to your posture 24/7, during all activities, including resting. I know, I know; but, trust me; you will thank me later, if not sooner.

By the way, you are all lucky I get any work done at all for you when I have that great view calling me outdoors every single minute of every single day. 🙂

Best of health to you and goodbye.
