Decrease Neck Strain by using your Head
HOW TO USE YOUR HEAD!
Your head weighs about 11 pounds. So it makes sense to balance your head over your spine for the most comfort. That 11 pound ball is with you everyday of your life … so let’s ‘balance’ it as comfortably as possible on top of your spine. Look at the woman in the photo and notice how she is simultaneously balancing a chair, a basket and a baby while walking down the road. Also look at the muscle development of her upper back. You can’t get that kind of back in a gym. That is a back built from using the body in a balanced way.
Connection is the word I love to use when I am talking about the body and posture. Feeling the connection keeps us from thinking about what muscles are being used. Knowing what muscles you are using is not important….having the awareness of where your body is in space (as this woman in the photo) is the secret to having a healthy spine. It’s being strong and feeling comfortable moment by moment. The body already knows what muscles to use…all we have to do is slow down long enough to feel the connection, stack the bones, and let it balance itself!
Where your head sits or stacks on the spine makes a world of difference in how your spine feels. It actually can make you LOOK better as well. Take the stress and strain out of the spine by relaxing and stacking!
