October is Spinal Health Month, and our spines deserve all the love. Proper posture in its most simple terms can be boiled down to the two most commonly used positions: sitting and standing. In today’s work environment, we are holding these positions for long stretches of time without any other movement – we are living a statue lifestyle. For this reason, Alessa Caridi, founder of JobuFIT is sending out an SOS on behalf of our bodies: Save Our Spines. Alessa walks us through, why we should support our bodies with proper posture, how to get started, and a few things to do to break the workspace statue lifestyle and create a healthy lifestyle at work, or as she calls it a ‘healthy workstyle.’
When your body is properly aligned it is said to be Jōbu (丈夫)-solid and strong.
