May is Posture Month

Part two: This week we concentrate on keeping our shoulders back and down in a neutral position as opposed to raised or hunched shoulders.

Go ahead and try to take a deep breath in your current position. How does that feel?

Now, move your shoulder blades (scapula) back and down. Take another deep breath. Is that more refreshing? Do you feel your lungs able to expand easier for a better inhalation?

Great.

Now, just remember to use proper upper back posture to breathe easy for your full inhalation and exhalation all day. You will actually learn to have better lung capacity and breath control.

Believe it or not, most people only use about one-fourth of their lung capacity at any given time of the day.

What do you want?

I want full use of my lung capacity; therefore, I will take these steps to maintain my posture and lung capacity for optimal oxygen flow, which leads to my boundless energy flow. Woohoo. 🙂

Best of health to you and good-bye.
