My chiropractor is my best friend. Not only does he make my back feel better from my scoliosis on a regular basic, but he also trains me about good posture that is also therapeutic to my back. I suggest trying one out. Perhaps you may suffer from some condition similar to mine, and some xrays may show this. If not, then just the posture training might be helpful.

If you don't feel like visiting a doctor, just posing in a straight position for about 10 seconds 3 times in a row every day might train your brain to think that way. Try to fix your posture whenever you realize it's bad. Yoga and dance are also great for posture problems.

Best of luck,
Emily <3

Just remember to keep your shoulders back and this will automatically straighten out your back. If you're sitting down and get the chance, try and sit in a chair with a straight back or against a wall. As Emily has already said, things like yoga are also very helpful.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Sometimes it's better to forget how you feel
