Head up back straight – that’s what Mum always used to say, perfect posture, but little did I (we) know back then that all those aches and pains are mostly caused by bad posture – the way we stand, the way we sit etc.
Pore muscle contraction through the core effects the way your muscles fire (your nerves) and eventually overtime everything starts to weaken and get ‘sloppy’ – even your nerves. The way you hold the position of your body effects your muscles, the nerves and the structure (the way the bones form) in your body. Even the load you have to carry on your body is effect by the way you stand.

Being aware of your posture is the first step. Small corrections of the way your stand – shoulders back, head up, core switched on. But let’s all be honest – we don’t always know when our core is switched on so try seeing a personal trainer, go to a recommended pilates teacher and through functional movements you can start strengthening the muscles and get those nerves firing more efficiently.
