A great article on how phones are affecting our posture and mood. There is one line in the article that states keeping your head and shoulders back and bring your phone to eye level while reading your phone - I am not sure what the author meant by "keeping your head and shoulders back" if she meant forcing or holding your body into a position, I would have to disagree. Don't force or hold your body into any position, try her idea of bringing the phone up to eye level. In addition, think of your feet and legs as your base of support - if they are under you everything else should stack up nicely. Better yet!! Try keeping your phone in your pocket more often smile emoticon ‪#‎bartleystructuralintegrationnotes‬ ‪#‎posture‬ ‪#‎behavior‬ ‪#‎mood‬ ‪#‎phones‬ ‪#‎sundaymorning‬ ‪#‎dailylife

Arms-
Arms have been on my mind recently - How do I use my arms?  How do you use your arms?  In a recent  conversation with one of my clients this topic came up.  Letting go of your arms is a foreign concept for a lot of my clients - or they think they are letting go of their arms but really they are not.  Why is this?   We use our arms in everyday life for a majority of purposes. (driving, technology, cooking, cleaning - you name it).  People associate arms with strong and powerful, why is this?   One of the definitions for strong in the dictionary is “mental power, force, or vigor.”  If you think about it your arms are the messengers to your heart - why would we want our arms to have mental power or force behind them?  I believe your arms can have power behind them - power does not have to mean strong, hard, stiff or protect.   Instead - think of the strength coming from your legs and feet while your arms follow with ease and grace.  Next time you have to use your arms while brushing your teeth, scrubbing a dish, driving your car - allow your arms to be soft and fluid - take notice if you can get the same job done with a softer quality as opposed to an armored, hard, “strong” quality.   Compare - contrast and allow a sense of wonderment with movement explorations.
