Do you know the correct way to stand?
As laptops, smartphones and tablets play more prominent roles in our lives, our health and posture are suffering. “The screen is a magnet. It wants to pull your body forward,” says Rubina Tahir, a Philadelphia-based chiropractor. Over time, she says, leaning in weakens our back muscles while shortening the ones in our chests.
At-home stretching, tailored to your posture type, can reduce and even reverse the effects of constant screen time. Tahir suggests doing these exercises at least once a day that can help you naturally find the correct way to stand.
