Job have you sitting all day? Then read this.

We begin our indoctrination into society by sitting. Remember kindergarten? One of the first things we learned how to do is sit, crossed legged, in a circle with the rest of the class. Then, you sit in a class room from grade school to college only to wind up sitting in front of a computer screen for long periods of time at work. Basically, by the time your an adult you have accepted that sitting for long periods of time is just a part of life. My degree is in finance and, before I became a trainer, I worked in corporate America as an analyst for five years. I sat at my desk for hours at a time and I know the toll prolonged sitting can take on your body in regards to posture and muscular imbalances. Most of my clients are successful professionals that work in an office and I spend half of my time trying to restore their posture and counteract the effects of sitting for long periods of time. So, if you work in an office you’ll want to keep reading because I am going to explain some simple mobility exercises you can do on your own that will improve your posture in a short period of time.
