Posture as a Health Hack

Posture as a Health Hack

Want one quick tip that will improve your health almost immediately? Stand up straighter.

The best trick I learned for this was from a chiropractor/massage therapist/yoga master type guy. He said, “Stand up, and imagine your spine, especially where it touches the base of your neck. Imagine that cross of your shoulders and your spine. Now, imagine theres a big strong cable loop there, awaiting a hook. Attach the hook and pull from the back of your neck straight up towards the ceiling, and let your bones fall into place.”

It’s hard to explain this without the visual, but it looked almost like being a hanging holiday ornament.

Walking straight and tall, sitting straight and tall, and working with the proper posture will improve your health instantly. It makes for better breathing, less muscle straing, less fatigue.

Just keep remembering this: pull on the hook. It reminds you to align your back, neck, and shoulders just so.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
