A New Option To For Your Self-Care Routine
All of us could be doing more to improve our health & well-being. A simple way to participate more in your own self-care is to practice moving your spine. Many of us go through life with stagnant postures and repetitive motions which can lead to a variety of painful conditions. Here is a simple move you can incorporate into your self-care routine. If you don’t currently have a self-care routine, this is also an excellent movement to begin with. You can practice it right now – no equipment needed (other than your spine ).
Try this as demonstrated, or modify it for either a seated or standing version. It’s the type of move that can be done daily, perhaps even a couple times each day. This article recommends as many as you can do for 1 minute, which is fine – but, there is likely more benefit in slowing it way down. Extend the duration to 2-3 minutes, trying to focus on slow motion, high quality repetitions only! Let us know if you have any questions.
Good luck & enjoy!
