What The Wrinkles On Your Shirt Tell You

We hate wrinkles. The goal is almost always to get rid of them. When it comes to your body alignment, it’s no different.

Posture is one of the most overlooked and ignored concepts in health. Correct alignment, particularly in the shoulders, helps nearly everything work and feel better and can help alleviate many of the common issues people face, including headaches and shoulder/back/neck pain. It can often be tough to stay aware of your posture on a moment to moment basis which is vitally important in bringing change to your alignment. Thankfully there’s a really simple clue that lays right on your shoulders…

Wrinkles.

As mentioned in the video, posture is about alignment. The goal isn’t to crank the shoulders back and fix things in the moment, it’s to continually remind the body where good alignment is and encourage slow change over time. The more often you can do that the better you will feel and the more long term change you’ll be able to achieve.

You still have to stretch the tight stuff and strengthen the weak muscles* but it all starts with awareness. When it comes to increasing your awareness, wrinkles are the little thing that can really help in a big way.

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

P.S. *A little more detail coming on the stretch and strengthen part of posture soon…
