Posture and Your Health

Often times I will tell my patients to sit or stand up better. We say two things in our office, good posture makes you healthy, happy and smart. Poor posture makes you sick, sad and stupid.

The interesting thing about posture is that it will direct your day. Think of something that makes you happy and you will notice that you feel taller and more stable. Try thinking of something sad and you will notice you are shorter and closed in. Your posture reflects your mood. An awesome tool is knowing that your mood can reflect your posture. Yep, change your posture, change your mood.

Poor posture supplies the brain with nerve information called nociceptive input. Essentially, this is negative information to the brain. Your brain does not like this. Picture mom not knowing what her kids are doing. She gets panicky and stressed. That is exactly what your brain does.

When the brain is stressed, your immune system falters, your mood flops and your learning fails. If we can restore balance to the body, the brain (mom) then becomes aware of what’s happening. Your brain will then relax and allow for healing, happiness and learning.
