Now that we are sheltered in place, it’s easy to spend more time sitting while watching TV, working on the computer, doing homework or participating in conference calls. This may contribute to over-stressed muscles due to poor postural alignment.
The average sedentary time for an American is 9-10 hours each day, and this was before the COVID-19 outbreak. Research has shown that if we sit less and move more, we live longer. Now is the time to pick up something that can be easily incorporated into your daily schedule. The main thing is that you stay moving more than you sit for your overall health. If you perform physical activity, remember to stay hydrated and to take frequent breaks every hour.
Position your body against a wall as shown with either foot behind. Point toes directly toward the wall and hold your heel down. Lean into the wall as shown so that you feel a stretch. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat twice, two times each day.
