[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Are you looking for the best posture corrector tip?  There are many things you can do to help improve your posture.  Here we’re going to cover just one super simple tip that you can incorporate into your day.

Tight chest and shoulder muscles, forward neck poke and a rounded posture can be a common site in the office. You’ve got your head down, and you’re engrossed in your work and gradually you become more and more slouched throughout the day.[/vc_column_text][vc_cta h2=”” txt_align=”center” el_width=”lg” add_button=”right” btn_title=”Click me :-)” btn_color=”juicy-pink” btn_size=”lg” btn_align=”center” btn_link=”||target:%20_blank|”]Are you into holistic fitness and health too?

The Best Posture Corrector Tip

One simple tip that can help open out your chest and create an ideal posture is to place your PALMS UP.  This is very simple and can be effective if practiced regularly in conjunction with some of the other suggestions I’ve mentioned.

All you need to do is turn your palms up.  This will help prevent rounded shoulders without you actually trying to force your shoulders back.

Here are a few ways you can incorporate my ‘best posture corrector’ tip into your life:

  • If your hands are on a keyboard, you can keep your forearms on your desk, but just turn your palms so they are facing upwards.  Maybe you can close your eyes and focus on breathing for a minute while you do this, as a bit of a ‘mental time out’
  • Whilst standing or walking, turn your palms to face forwards instead of behind you or into your sides.  You should feel your chest muscles opening up
  • Sit down and take a hands free phone call with your palms up, or do the same if you are sitting down listening to someone talk
  • Lie on your bed with your arms beside you or outstretched, turn your palms up and relax.

I am never an advocate of ‘quick fixes’…because they don’t work.  As mentioned above, if you want to improve your posture it will take more than just practicing this tip regularly.  But it is a really nice simple first step to gaining awareness and taking action towards better posture.
