Staying Healthy While Keeping Busy

By Donna Stark

If your life has been busier than normal, you know how difficult it can be to put your health on top of the priority list, and how easy it is to cut back on your sleep, order takeout, and skip those all-important daily workouts just to save yourself some time. But don't be so quick to put your health on hold! There still is a way to prioritize it that doesn't require using up any more of your precious minutes and hours. Interested in what it is?

Maintaining Good Posture

Did you know that the way you hold and carry your body while standing, sitting, and lying down can have a significant impact on your overall health and wellness? Poor posture can lead to increased pressure on your spine and joints, which can contribute to pain, fatigue, and serious medical conditions. If you are having trouble maintaining correct posture, try incorporating the following tips. 

  • Environment - Designing a spine-friendly environment can help you correct your posture and maintain better habits throughout the day. If you work or study at a desk, consider investing in some ergonomic equipment and furniture. And if you are on your feet all day, make sure you are wearing quality shoes that support your body. It's also important to take plenty of breaks throughout the day.
  • Body position - After you have your environment ready to go, it's time to start paying better attention to the way you sit and stand. Avoid slouching over your desk, place your feet flat on the floor, and keep your monitors and screens at eye level. If you are on your feet, make sure your weight is distributed evenly, stand straight and tall, and keep your shoulders pulled back.
  • Practice - Now the hard part comes in ... putting these tips to practice. By focusing on these healthier habits every single day, your body will slowly start to remember how to maintain correct posture all on its own! It may take some time to get it to that point, but it will happen, so don't give up!

Staying Healthy While Keeping Busy

We all have those times when life gets busy and our healthy habits are pushed to the side, but that doesn't mean all of our healthy habits need to be ignored. You can still prioritize your health and well-being by focusing on good posture throughout your days. It's the least you can do for the body that does so much for you!
