6 new ways to improve your posture
GO GO GADGET
Upright Go: Remember when you were little and constantly told to sit up straight? That’s essentially what the Upright Go is: a wearable posture pal. This sleek gadget, worn on the back, vibrates every time you slouch. (£79.99)
COOL BUT HOT
Manuka Life: Once you’ve committed to improving your posture, you need a reason to hold your head high. Manuka Life is a luxury yoga clothing brand that ensures you maintain a semblance of cool, even if your internal monologue is telling you you’re a sweaty mess.
Pilates: If you want to improve your posture, a trip to Bloomsbury is on the cards. Body Control Pilates is effectively Pilates HQ, so if you want to find a teacher or attend classes this is the place.
SHAKE IT UP
Performance Protein: If you’ve been putting in the hard yards in the pursuit of perfect posture, you’ll need something to salve those aching joints. This Performance Protein powder from Form makes a nutritious shake, which has been engineered to help with recovery and building muscle.
Etefy: Are you worried that carrying heavy shopping is damaging your muscles and joints? There is a solution in the form of Etefy – an online London supermarket with 24-hour home delivery.
AT A STRETCH
Homedics Stretch: Too busy to attend your local weekly yoga class? Don’t fret – this yoga-inspired back-stretching mat means you can give your body a treat in the comfort of your own home.
