Get Straight in the New Year

Courtesy Imagerymajestic/freedigitalphotos.net

Good posture is the foundation of health and wellbeing. Correct posture alleviates pain in the back, neck and extremities. It also improves breathing, circulation and boosts energy.

The LAYLA Maternity Bodysuit and Post Maternity Body Shaper feature built-in Posture Bands that bring the body into correct alignment to help you stay balanced and get straight, all the time!

Posture expert Esther Gokhale explains how these products promote perfect posture focusing on four key points:

1. Tilt your pelvis forward slightly to align the lower back.

2. Release the rib cage so that it is flush with the contour of your torso opening the chest.

3. Settle the shoulders by rolling them, a little up, a lot back then relax.

4. Straighten the neck and slacken the jaw by gently pulling the head back and upward lengthening the neck while letting the lower jaw slide slightly downward.

‘Tis the Season to be Stressed

What is stress doing to your health? As the old saying goes, a woman’s work is never done and that’s never more true than around the holiday season, when there is always something else you feel the need to accomplish.

Isn’t it time you stopped doing and started enjoying the holiday season before it’s all over – and before your health is adversely affected? Here’s a few simple ways you can overcome at any time of the day.  (read more…)
