BACK TO SCHOOL POSTURE TIPS

3. Stretch between classes: Practice posture exercises throughout the day, such as when you get up from your desk, or right before breaks and lunch. Practicing better posture at scheduled times will help better posture become a habit. One exercise is imagining a string passing through your body from ceiling to floor, pulling you upward and making you taller. Think of stretching your head toward the ceiling, increasing the space between your rib cage and pelvis.

The benefits of good posture are more than just looking good, especially as a grade school or college student where you spend most of your time sitting down at a desk in the library or an uncomfortable chair in a lecture hall. No worries, though,wehaveyourbackandwehavesometips foryouto improveyourposturewithouteventrying. 1. Adjust your backpack: One of the reasons your back hurts is because the weight you carry on your backpack. Make sure you take just what you need or carry anything extra in your hands. This will -literally- take weight from your back and will improve your posture. If at college, leave the heavy supplies at your dormitory or

apartment and take a good walk home every time you need them (say yes to exercise!) Also, be sure to keep your backpack as close to your back as possible by adjusting your backpack handles. This will keep your spine from curving excessively due to the weight when carrying your backpack. 2. Wear both straps of your backpack: The cool kids walk around campus carrying their backpacks on just one shoulder, but the cool kids also have bad posture and back problems. Do not follow this trend, and use both straps of yourbackpackso theweight isevenlydistributed on your back.
