Stand With Purpose

If the nervous system governs muscular tension over periods of months, years, and longer, it also contributes to musculoskeletal alignment, for better or for worse. This goes way deeper than simply choosing to stand up tall.

As we’ve talked about before, variety is crucial to healthy nervous system function, and therefore your posture. Put yourself in novel environments, or simply approach the mundane with a new perspective, and you’ll notice far more improvement in your posture than you would by simply stacking piles of bones one on top of the other.
