Everyone is talking about good posture. Recently, AOL News shared a few reasons why good posture is important, including leading to a better sex life. Then, Fast Company shared how good posture is the key to boosting your productivity, and Yahoo talked about how good posture and strong abs go hand-in-hand. It’s as if the world has suddenly stumbled upon one of the secrets to health and happiness and they can’t help sharing their good news.
And, really, it’s no wonder that good posture is going viral. There are just so many benefits of good posture and so many reasons why today’s society needs good posture more than ever. As UNILAD said in their viral pick up of the UPRIGHT Posture Trainer, “We all need this!”
Why Is Good Posture a Buzzword?
So, why is everyone talking about good posture? It’s not like we’ve just started dealing with back pain or slouching. But while that’s true, it’s not the whole truth. Over the last few decades, our lives have changed dramatically.
Let’s take a look at a recent study by the British Journal of Sports Medicine, which looked at how bad sitting is for your health. Researchers found that for every hour of seated TV watching a person enjoys, they cut about 22 minutes from their life span. Now, the TV wasn’t even around 100 years ago, and it’s also not like people sit only in front of the TV. In fact, according to the Annals of Internal Medicine, more than half of the average person’s waking hours are spent sitting, and this is a major problem.
You might be wondering what sitting has to do with good posture, and the answer is everything. Sitting is what harms your posture the most, and posture-related problems are increasing in prevalence around the world. When you sit, you tend to slouch over your desk or slump over the arm of the couch, and this is where the biggest problem lies because bad posture is bad for you in so many ways.
Bad posture causes fatigue, pain, negative self-image, additional stress, weak muscles, poor concentration, and so much more. And since society is all about getting healthy, good posture has become synonymous with the hope for a better and longer life.
How UPRIGHT Encourages Good Posture
Don’t worry! There is good news. Unlike many of the viral health crazes going around, learning to sit and stand with good posture is actually quite simple. All it takes is a little training with UPRIGHT.
UPRIGHT is a smart device that works with you to correct your posture, naturally. How does it work?
- First, stop stressing about remembering your posture every second of every day. You’re a busy person. You don’t have the time to think about your posture on top of everything else. Let the stress go and leave it to UPRIGHT.
- Second, stick our simple, easy to use and remove, patch to the middle of your lower back (right where you tend to feel the most back pain).
- Third, attach UPRIGHT to the patch and then wear your clothes normally. The trainer is so small and unobtrusive that no one will know it’s there.
- Finally, live your life normally and let UPRIGHT do all the posture training work. It’s simple, throughout the day as you walk and sit, UPRIGHT will vibrate whenever you start to slouch. The vibration acts as your reminder to straighten your spine, roll back your shoulders, and sit and stand up straight.
It’s that easy, and you don’t even need to wear UPRIGHT all day. In only 15 minutes a day, UPRIGHT can train you to have good posture. It works by helping you to build muscle memory and core strength, so that good posture becomes as commonplace as breathing.
Even better, when you train with UPRIGHT, you don’t have to guess at your progress. Your UPRIGHT device is connected to your phone through a simple app. The app lets you set daily goals, provides tips, techniques, and video tutorials, and lets you track your posture statistics and analytics.
Physiotherapists and Chiropractors recommend using UPRIGHT to make good posture a reality in your life because it should be more than just a buzzword. Good posture should be a vital part of your healthy lifestyle.
