Fitness Friday with Farel: Postural Awareness

Motherhood can bring so many things; love, joy, beauty AND fatigue, aches and pains. While this time in life is incredibly life-changing, it can also tax the body in very profound ways. Whether you are breastfeeding or bottle-feeding, using cloth or disposable diapers, co-sleeping or not - your body will be challenged! Every motion in life can lead to postural dysfunction, especially motherhood!

When motherhood pulls you forward, you can do specific movements to rectify the natural pull of the shoulders:

1. Include shoulder rolls backwards and chest stretches

2. Strength exercises for the upper back like a standing row

Yes, motherhood can lead to postural dysfunction, however, try these movements to reverse it.
