I am also adding another one that in a way is simple because it doesn't add a new routine to our lives but in another way is a lot harder because I need to be aware of it all of the time.
My new goal is to work on having good posture. I had kind of thought that I did okay in this area but after looking at a picture of myself I realized that it was something that I really needed to work on.
I do have pretty good posture when driving anyway but standing, sitting, reading and such can often find me a little slumped and round shouldered. With all of my piano lessons I often find myself slouching on the chair. This is something that I need to work on.
Why should we work to have good posture?
- We can breath better when we are standing or sitting up straight. And breathing well does a lot to make us healthier in general.
- Our muscles don't get tight and sore.
- We are less likely to have headaches, neck pain and back pain.
- It also says a lot to others concerning how we hold our bodies. With good posture we look happier and more confident.
On a happy note for me - High heeled shoes are very hard on your posture. Thankfully I have never liked them anyway!
I am feeling so thank-ful for how God put so much thought into creating our bodies. He designed them in amazing ways!
