Neck Stretching for Better Posture – Part 1

Now that we’ve been using Smartphones for at least the past decade, it’s no surprise to me that this essential device is now reaking havoc on our bodies, or at least my body.

Just last night, I sat in my living room catching up on the latest motorcycle news and it dawned on me just how much my posture sufferers, head down neck jutting out and turned to the left side of my body, while using my phone.

I really need to change the habits created when using my phone.
So here’s an  stretch to offset poor smartphone posture.

1. Behind your back, hold the right wrist with your left hand. This anchors your right shoulder in place.

2. Laterally bend your neck toward the left shoulder (ear to shoulder).

3. Close your eyes, relax, breathe and hold the stretch for 30 seconds.

4. Repeat on the other side (clearly I should practice what I preach more often)!

Go ahead,  give it try and incorporate it into your daily stretching routine.
