HERE’S WHAT YOU DO TO PERFECT YOUR POSTURE.

POSTURE CORRECTOR

We’re discussing one of the most important things on the blog today. POSTURE.

I use to have terrible posture, and have been working on fixing it. Of course, as per usual, I’m ALWAYS testing things out for you guys so that I can bring it to the blog and share. This is one of those things that I NEED to share with you ASAP, because it has helped my posture tremendously.

Here’s the thing – I work at a desk literally 99% of the day. When I’m not at work using a screen, I’m sitting and blogging, or editing a video/photos, etc. I’m constantly sitting and working on a screen.

And sure, I go to the gym and get in my stretches in, etc. But it’s not enough. I need something that helps with the long hours of sitting and slouching. Many researchers say that sitting for too long can be worse than smoking!

Let me get a little specific on this for a second:

“Sitting for too long puts stress on the muscles and discs of your back and neck. This position results in tightness of your hip flexors such as the iliopsoas muscle and pressure and some ischemia (restricted blood flow) of your buttock muscles—the gluteus maximus. This muscle is an important supporter of the spine. The longer you stay seated, the more likely you are to let your posture slide. Slouching can cause the spinal ligaments to stretch beyond their healthy limit, and poor posture can strain your spinal discs. {Source}

Point is, bad posture can cause severe health issues. You want to make sure you have good posture throughout the day. Like, ALWAYS. So, when we sit all day we sometimes forget about our posture.

Well, let me introduce you to THE ANDEGO POSTURE CORRECTOR.

Guys, I have been using one for almost a year and a half now, and it’s made such a difference in my life. I used to be a sloucher. A real Hunchback of Notre Dame if you will. LOL. But, in all honesty I am sitting all day, so naturally my back was slouching. And when I came across this posture corrector, I immediately jumped on it.

Basically, it pulls your shoulders together so that your back is in line and your posture is straight. Remember when you were younger and your mother told you to walk around with books on your head for a straighter back? Or was that just my mother? Regardless, walking around with books on your head is just SO inefficient and we’re not about perfecting a balancing act here…

Let me tell you why you need this:

  • This posture corrector is SUPER comfortable. While other posture correctors dig into your armpits, hurt your skin and are uncomfortable after 5 minutes, this one comes with detachable armpit pads and provides all day wearability.
  • You can wear this under your clothes. The latex-free adjustable design is discreet enough to wear under your shirt or blouse.
  • The posture corrector promotes long-term muscle memory, so even after you remove it, you’ll still be standing straight up.
  • It has adjustable shoulder straps, so you can get it on and off easily. And anyone can wear it.

Trust me, you guys will LOVE this. It has completely transformed my posture and even helped me with back pains. Again, sitting for too long can cause so many issues with your back and spine.

It might not be the chicest thing you wear, but who cares because you’re wearing it under clothes and no one will see.

Grab the exact one I have, here.

Here are some other tips on straightening your posture:

  • Do work standing at a high table or counter.
  • Walk laps every hour or so.
  • Set a timer on your computer for a stand-and-stretch break every 30 minutes.
  • Park your car a bit further from your office to sneak in some extra steps.
  • Take a short walk during your lunch break.

Anyway, the next time you’re at your desk feeling slouched, head on over to Amazon.ca, and grab a couple of these. Keep one at your desk at work, and one at home. TRUST ME.

I’m currently wearing mine and writing this post.
