Does the Grinch Need Corrective Exercise?

I would say so. I mean look at his posture!

Look at that that spinal flexion!

Don’t act surprised MR. Grinch…

You know your posture stinks, don't give me that "You Mean Me?" look!

It probably started when he was a kid in school like most people…

Remember those desks? Hopefully you had better hair in elementary school.

Let’s face it, The Grinch is part of the flexion addiction society that we see around us

Does this posture look familiar?

So when most people are concerned about holidays and shopping I am worried about our friend The Grinch. I mean he needs some love too. Who is teaching him to do his foam rolling/SMR and activation techniques? It is certainly not Cindy Lou Who.

Not even old school Cindy Lou…

Old school Cindy is cute...but she does not know either.

So find The Grinch in your life and help them. We all have that grumpy person, client, loved one in our lives that is banged up with poor posture and they need some help. This is the time of year to reach out to them. That is really the spirit of the season. You can rejoice in the religious origins of the Christmas Season or the over-bearing commercialism of this time of year, even the winter solstice.

It doesn’t matter what you celebrate, just amplify the spirit of the season. Smile more, be kinder to others, stay positive and be more generous. It is about giving to others, not just physical gifts, but gifts of joy and personality. Share who you are and your gifts. That is what I like best about the holiday season. It provides the excuse to be nice and helpful, to be more concerned with others than ourselves. We may carry ourselves like this year round, but the extra incentive is nice. Life brings us challenges and it is easy to get down. Use this time of year to re-focus on others and the opportunity to help and contribute to others.

So The Grinch does need some corrective exercise and postural work, but the big picture is we should give to people unconditionally, regardless of the facade they put on.

Merry Christmas!

    haha!! this is one of the funniest posts I have ever read. But at the same time, I would like to point out a very smart insight here: people who have better posture tend to be happier. I bet that we could prove this! So stand straight and proud!
