Making TV time count

Is gravity bad for a good aligned posture? The heaviest part of the human body is the head, which makes our body unbalanced. Our daily life is centred around activities in front of us. The asymmetric activities make the body structure misaligned. The head protrudes from the body which creates strains in the neck, shoulders, upper back and lower back. That causes tiredness and pains. These are all happening as we live in the relationship between a body and gravity. Sound bad? It is! Yet the gravity enables us to sit, stand, walk, write and accomplish all sorts of activities. With a friendly relationship with gravity, it is important to keep a relaxed posture and use it well. We have the anti-gravity muscles to maintain our postures with respect to gravity’s ever-present force. They work to keep our postures in motion in harmony with one another; when we sit, stand, and move around. Our daily activities consist of balance between the supporting and working muscles. We double the fatigue if the anti-gravity muscles have excessive stress, and the working muscles must then work harder than usual. The key is to not give extra effort to the anti-gravity muscles. It is also crucial to give them a time to return to the neutral position. Our TV time often gives us the same sitting position for long periods of time. Make TV time count with your new awareness to realign, it is time for a reset of your anti-gravity muscles.
