Physio Session #2 and My Posture

So I had my second physio appt yesterday afternoon (thank you 3M for allowing me to be flexible in my work hours!) and I was told I have horrid posture while sitting, though I suppose my standing posture is likely no better.

So now I get to sit more actively instead of just crumpling into my knees while I whittle away at work.  If you find yourself sitting at a desk all day, look into getting your posture improved. It will help you immediately, and you can thank me in 30 years when you are ready to retire and you don't have chronic back pains. And who knows, maybe you'll be able to conquer the Kamasutra....

Here's a great guide on proper posture at a desk:

What I've found to be most beneficial is:

- Roll your pelvis down towards your seat so you feel your sit-bones. You want to be sitting directly on these as it will aid in attaining a more natural curvature for your back.  The sit-bones are the bones that hurt after too much cycling, or even dragon boating.

- Draw your chin into your neck ever so slightly. I have a tendency to lean forward and this can also misalign my back.

Also remember, I'm no expert. I am simply jotting down some of the changes I've implemented. Use my advice at your own peril.
