October 2011 Newsletter

Feeling Stressed?
My favorite quick tip helps you to open your lungs, improve circulation and encourage a safe, grounded posture.  This 10 second sequence can be done seated, standing or lying down.
First, imagine a string from middle of the top of your head pulling up, elongating your spine.  “String-Head"

“String Head"
*Photo demonstrates how you can imagine the string.  Arms remain at sides

Now, tuck your chin back toward the base of your skull.  "Turtle Tuck" helps to counter-act forward head posture.


Avoid Forward Head Posture With a "Turtle Tuck".
Next, open the chest and back with "Goal Post Arms".  Another option is to do shoulder rolls to the back while lowering the shoulder blades.

"Goal Post Arms"
The last part of the sequence doesn’t photograph well because it’s so subtle.  It’s a little Pelvic Tilt.  (Hint:  Squeeze the cheeks of your buns together to keep the back from arching and bring it to neutral)
That’s 8 seconds.  Add, 2 seconds more to hold and be aware of this posture and your breathing and that’s 10 seconds.  Surely, even busy people have 10 seconds to spare!
Try doing this sequence regularly and let me know how you feel!
Until the next part of our journey,
