If you’re going to spend all that time working out and eating right, you might as well maximize your efforts by standing tall. Here are 10 easy ways to improve your posture.
1. The Balloon Method. My favorite techniques and not very well known.
Try this: If you don’t have great posture, stand up right now. Now imagine that there is a balloon on a string extending from the crown of your head. Imagine that the balloon is pulling your head upwards toward the sky. You’ll automatically stand upright with your spine elongated. Doesn’t this little mind trick work great? If you keep doing this for a few weeks, the habit will stick and you’ll have corrected your posture.
