Sadly, most of us have poor posture even while we are lying down. Face it, having a body is hard work. Try these:
- Lie on the floor on your back for 3-5 minutes – no extra padding. Our western lifestyles have us sitting and laying on comfortable surfaces all the time, which changes our posture.
- Can you lie on your stomach, too? Without a pillow, head turned to one side? It’s a great way to help your neck and shoulders find their neutral positions, but not everyone can manage it.
- If you are a side-sleeper, try sleeping with a pillow in front of you to prop up the arm that is not on the mattress.
