I am in PA again with my Dad. He had his back surgery two weeks ago and yesterday the staples were removed. Now the goal is to get moving. He needs to wean from the walker and use his cane. He needs to do his leg exercises.
And he needs to sit up straight, and stand up straight.
We all do.
That's a lesson I'm learning with my time with Dad and the physical therapy nurse. Posture helps a lot with your overall health.
We writers and readers spend far too much time hunched over our computers, laptops, or tablets. Make a conscious effort to straighten up. Be sure to stand and stretch every thirty minutes or so. Best to take a twenty minute walk a day, if you can.
Hey, it's Friday. You can slack off a bit - get outside and roam. Your future back and self will thank you. Cheers everybody
