So you are spending the whole day sitting? You are not alone. Me too. With the way our lives are structured we can hardly escape sitting too much. And reversing those slouching habits is just hard! So what do you do? Are you doomed to bad posture? No! I learned this upper back release technique…
So you are spending the whole day sitting? You are not alone. Me too. With the way our lives are structured we can hardly escape sitting too much. And reversing those slouching habits is just hard!
So what do you do? Are you doomed to bad posture?
I learned this upper back release technique in a posture workshop a month ago. I got to say: It feels great.
It’s not an exercise. It’s a method to help your back take its proper shape and not be in “slouchy” shape.
Mom, if you are reading this, this one is for you
Watch the episode to release your back + learn a quick test to check how stiff your upper back is 😉
(If you find that your back is not stiff at all, then congrats!)
You need a small massage ball or a tennis ball. Either one of those work. In the video I am using a massage ball.
Like for fad-free, healthier choices!
[Why a massage ball? Because it helped me get rid of my chronic pain, and eventually increase my leg flexibility beyond my wildest imagination! But for the purpose of this technique a tennis ball works just a well, if not better!]
Release back technique Breakdown
Lie down and put the ball under your upper back. Hold it for 30 sec. Then put the ball under another spot of your upper back. Repeat as needed.
If you send hours slouching every day, then it’s highly recommended you do it daily.
Come on don’t get discouraged. It feels good when you do it. And it’s not exercise. You just lie down. Try it and then do what works for you.
