3 Active Stretching Exercises To Improve Your Posture

Let’s face it – we all suffer from bad posture. And yes, that’s perfectly normal given our sedentary lifestyle. Still, that’s no excuse for giving up and making peace with it. These 3 active stretching exercises will help you reduce back pain and restore proper posture!

Did you know that slouching can lead to a myriad of digestive problems, constipation being one of them? 

In addition to that, it puts pressure on our abdominals and bladder, so we might even experience, ehm… let’s call them “leakage problems”.  Poor posture goes beyond just internal physical problems.

We rely on non-verbal cues to judge other people, and bad posture creates an impression of laziness, inferiority, and insecurity. Just imagine how many chances at good first impression slouching could ruin for you! Whether you’re looking to improve upper-body mobility or just focus on good posture, we have you covered!

You know what they say – better safe than sorry, so start improving your posture today!
