09 Jun It all starts at the CORE!
The core, consists of the muscles in your abdominal and lower back area. Daily bending, twisting, lifting, carrying, hammering and reaching take a toll on our bodies. All of our movements originate in our core. Even sitting in a chair or standing in place requires core strength. It all starts with awareness. Being cognizant of how you move throughout your day is key. Strengthening your core and keeping it engaged at all times will promote;
* Healthy Back
* Better Balance
* Good Posture
I like to keep a timer in the car…. I engage my core and set it for 30 seconds. So for 30 seconds (while still driving) everything is tight. I do this for 3-5 consecutive times then break. Eventually it does become mindless… What a GREAT habit to acquire!!
