Do you ever notice that your hips feel tight? Or maybe you notice its uncomfortable to squat during a workout, to pick up your child, or even to grab a pen off the floor something doesn’t feel right?
We’ve noticed these patterns can be an unknown culprit:
-Long periods of sitting
– Protection mode
-Forward head posture
1) Long periods of sitting
If you think about it, we sit quite a lot with our current lifestyle. For instance, you sit on the bus/car to go to work (~30 min), sit at work/school (~7-9 hours), sit to on the bus/car to go home (~30 min), sit to eat dinner (~30 min), sit on the couch to watch tv (2-3 hours).
Based on this lifestyle, its ~11 hours of sitting! Wow. If this sounds like you, then we can implement other ways to combat this sitting ordeal.
- Drink more water -> leads to more bathroom breaks -> increases movement
- Utilize a sit /stand desk
- Walk to and from work
2) Protection mode
3) Forward head posture
