A posture tip from Dr. Nick

Studies have shown that spreading your shoulders and keeping an open chest not only improves your posture, but boosts your mood as well. So let’s add a little positive energy to our day with one easy exercise that you can do even when you’re sitting at work. First of all sit up straight and pull your shoulders down with your arms hanging at your sides. Now squeeze those shoulder blades together and turn your arms out, so that your palms are facing forward and slightly out. Hold this for 10 seconds as you take a deep breath in and a slow breath out. Do this 3 or 4 times and be amazed at how a simple exercise improves both your posture and your attitude. Feel free to do these as many times throughout the day as you want!
