Following on from my earlier post, here are a few more helpful hints for improving your posture.

Roll your shoulders

Stand with your feet slightly apart and rotate your shoulders backwards three to four times by bringing them up to your ears, back and down and finally around to the front while bending your elbows to relax your muscles and release any tension.

On the final rotation, take a broom handle or stick and slide it through your elbows behind your back, letting it sit in the crook of your elbows for a few minutes.

This will instantly correct your posture, engage your core muscles and take pressure off your lower back.

Practise this daily for 15-30 minutes to create a new muscle “memory” and a better default posture..
