Adults

  1. Stand Tall. Consciously work on your standing posture daily.
  2. Sit right: at the desk, in the car, on the sofa and at the dinner table.
  3. Squat, don’t stoop, with every day picking up and putting down.
  4. Minimise asymmetrical or one-sided activities: on the phone, using computer mouse, sitting style, at work, carrying bags, vacuuming and carrying children.
  5. Use it or lose it. Optimal frame strength and condition comes from regular joint use in all directions in all areas.
  6. Do your prescribed exercises every week (like brushing your teeth).

Children and Students

  1. Stand Tall. Consciously work on your standing posture daily.
  2. Sit right: at the desk, in the car, on the sofa and at the dinner table.
  3. Tummy time, side or back-lying are good alternatives to slouched sitting.

Babies

  1. Minimise asymmetrical or one-sided postures and activities. Vary posture and load on your baby’s body by swapping the sides of your body through each day when carrying or bottle-feeding your baby.
  2. Where comfortable, you may also vary the ‘style’ of the carry e.g., baby facing forward, facing behind you, baby lying on their side in your arms.
