4 Minutes to Improve 🧍‍♀️ Posture

aging fascia move your body movement posture weight loss Jan 12, 2022

I am motivated to spend 4 minutes of my day releasing the tension between my shoulder blades and ensuring that I keep my vertebrae flexible.  


I don't want to look hunched over, so my big WHY is to add moves like this into my days.


Pay attention to how many times during the day you are in a forward leaning posture. When you become aware of your posture you can begin to make small changes like the one I say to myself all day long...shoulder blades in my back pocket. This straightens out my posture very quickly.


Our posture also affects our state of mind. It's like a double edge sword. You don't want to move because you feel anxious or depressed but moving will make you feel better. That's why it's great to just start with a 4 minute move.


The truth is, when you’re feeling anxiety or depression, it can be challenging to get up and move. But study after study shows that moving our bodies actually can make a big difference toward emotional balance!


When it comes to depression, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Psychiatry reported that people who move more (not just exercise, but also daily activities) have a significantly lower risk for major depressive disorder.


And when it comes to anxiety, studies show that as little as 5 minutes of cardio exercise (brisk walking, biking, etc.) helps your body battle anxiety. It cuts tension, boosts and stabilizes the mood, helps you sleep better, and feel better in general.


Enjoy the video above and see how it makes you feel better.  Let me know!!

I’m a wife and mum, personal trainer, fitness/pilates instructor, Behaviour Change Specialist, Nutrition Coach, Pain-Free Movement Specialist, author of Cookie Dough in the Dark, creator of Vibrant Living Membership - your ONE STOP shop for movement + nutrition + mindset..... among many other things!!  I’ve had many issues dealing with the scale going up and down, a muffin top that wouldn’t disappear, emotional eating binges that did not involve carrots and struggling with insecurity! Through all of this I just wanted to feel normal. I wanted to be happy like everyone else!

In my teens and 20’s I wanted the quick fixes, the magic pills, the fairy dust – whatever I could get my hands on to make me a lean, happy and sexy machine. Yup, found out it doesn’t exist. I wanted to cry!! I was so frustrated. I felt like I was going around and around until I was completely exhausted and back at the starting point. And when I talk with other women they feel that way too. So, I delved further into holistic health – the emotional, mental and physical – wrote a book, and have been in this field for many years helping 1000’s of women.

I discovered that by being smarter, not working harder, I could get the results I wanted and also for my clients. It started with some really small shifts that I will share with you over time. With this new knowledge, I felt ALIVE, VIBRANT and COMFORTABLE in my own skin. And my clients felt this way too!

My mission is to continue to help women step into the body they WANT. To feel confident & sexy, in control of their food choices and have their clothes fit just as they should while having the energy to live a VIBRANT life with no aches and pains.
