Postural Exercise

This simple exercise can relieve postural strain, making your day more comfortable: sit or stand with your feet shoulder width apart; relax your arms by your side with your palms facing forward; lift your chest like you’re being pulled straight up from the top of your chest by a rope; tuck your chin straight back (you should not be looking down); finally, push your shoulders down; now hold for 10 seconds and don’t forget to breathe. This should be performed once an hour or as needed.
