I want to get old gracefully. I want to have good posture,
I want to be healthy and be an example to my children.
Today on our 30 Day Life Improvement Plan, we're going to go a li'l "old school" and focus on our posture. We're focusing on posture because usually poor posture is a sign of low energy. Hopefully, by being more aware of how we carry ourselves, we'll impove our energy in turn.
As a bonus for today, we're going to give ourselves a scalp...so, let's head right to it! OK, pardon the cheesy pun. ; )
Today's plan -
Posture - For part of the day, observe the people around you. Notice the ones who have a confident, upright---but not military stiff---posture. Similarly, notice the people who have poor posture. Pay attention to what makes their posture poor: forward hunch, drooping head, a jutting chin.
Now, for the second part of the day, observe your own posture. Is your chin parallel to the ground? Do your shoulders slouch? Do you hunch often when seated?
Make a conscious effort to be more aware of your posture. Below are some related links.
Bonus - Scalp Massage: If you wish you can begin a daily/weekly practice of massaging your scalp. As with most things in life, be firm yet gentle when massaging your scalp.
Tracking Your Food and Mood
Tomorrow, we'll begin to look at our eating habits and on Friday, we'll start working on our fitness. For this week, do what you can. Again, congratulate yourself for making an effort to change your life. This 30 Day Life Improvement Plan is jam-packed so have patience with yourself and if you only do one activity a week...at least that's something!
Of course, use common sense on this program and the standard of checking with a medical professional before beginning a health/fitness program applies here.
