November Friday Social

Due to remote learning and working from home, posture has taken a toll on families. The November Friday Social will focus on how we can benefit from improving existing ergonomics to prevent back aches, growing pains, headaches, migraines and sciatica. And while these issues may not present themselves now, it is also important to develop a good postural foundation to avoid future spinal issues such as scoliosis and tech neck.

Few people realize there is a connection between posture and mental wellness. Did you know that if someone has poor posture, especially at a very young age, the biomechanics of the posture limit the amount of oxygen to the heart and lung regions? This then means that they are not getting the proper oxygen to think clearly and make healthy decisions. Mood is then also negatively impacted because the lack of oxygen makes one fatigued, sad/depressed and unmotivated.
