We all need to sit better. By that I mean sit in a way that requires muscle activity, instead of leaning into furniture and/or slouching to conserve energy. Correct posture while seated places proper forces on our body, specifically our abdomen, and helps engage an inactive core.
Sit near the front of your chair.
Create a neutral pelvis
De-hump the upper back
- Sit near the front of your chair (prevents slouching into furniture)
- Untuck the pelvis (create a neutral pelvis by rolling your pelvis forward)
- De-hump the upper back (keep the ribcage down, pull your chin straight back to the wall behind you, and lift the crown of your head up to the ceiling)
- Sit differently (ex: on your knees, on a yoga ball, in a “v” on the floor)
- Sit less (find creative ways to sit less during your day)
