Life Supports You
Your back has supported you all of your life. How are you treating it? Is it slumped over when you walk? Is it slouched when you sit at your computer? Does your back hurt when you get you walk or get out of your car?
Back pain can be related to many emotions in your life. Lower back pain may reflect your fear of money or lack of financial support. A pain in your middle back may be connected to your guilt. Do you wish some people would get off your back? Do you feel stuck in all that stuff back there? Upper back pain could be related to you holding back love or feeling unloved. Do you feel a lack of emotional support?
I have an exercise bar mounted on my bathroom door jam. Every morning, I hang on this bar to give my back a wonderful stretch. Then I lift my knees up to my stomach or as high as I can three or more times. Lifting the knees is good for the abs. I love this exercise. It makes my back feel so strong and so good!
This week, I’d like you to put a sign on top of your computer or desk that says “Arch Your Back.” Remember to take a break every hour or so when you are sitting to stretch and move your back. You can also buy back cushions for your office chair and car that will remind you to always sit up straight and tall.
Your back loves you and wants to support you. Love your back and let it move for you every day.
Let’s affirm: I know that Life always supports me.
