In case you missed it, earlier this week I had my friends from The Sitting Solution, Chad and Brenda Walding, as guest writers on the blog. Actually, you might even already be familiar with them, especially if you read my post from last fall on my struggles with neck and upper back pain.
The truth is, I’ve got 18 years of bad posture and movement that I’m trying to correct. And just like lowering stress, I think getting rid of neck, shoulder and upper back pain is something that needs constant attention. The reality is our western world is currently created to induce stress and to put us humans in unnatural positions.
What I really admire about these two is that they understand that the world isn’t changing anytime soon. And that means we need to shift the conversation to not making it wrong, but what can we do to offset the damage it does to us. I really love how they’re able to break down complex movement patterns and give everyone some easy to follow, straightforward tips to implement right away – even in your cubicle at the office.
I was blown away by the results I’ve been personally seeing from their work, so I wanted to interview them and get more details. Whether you’re struggling with chronic pains from sitting in the wrong position all day, or just want to maximize your health and longevity, this podcast is a must listen…
