Laughter is good for our health and since today is April 1st, I thought an April Fools Day Newsletter would be appropriate. I'm hoping you caught on and laughed at all my ridiculous jokes rather than thinking I'd lost my mind! If you didn't receive the newsletter, here are some highlights with commentary below each article:
NOTE: April Fools Day Newsletter is all fake and contains false information! Read for enjoyment; don't follow this advise; keep doing what you're doing. :)
Nothing could be further from the truth, as real research shows us that good posture has many benefits and slouching has none.
This is false. Stress actually causes many negative health effects including high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, obesity, headaches, loss of sleep, depressed immune system, muscle pains, and many other undesirable things. Keep practicing your stress deduction techniques!
Yes, muscles still do move bones, just as they always have. And no, there is no "red fat" and I would recommend keeping your muscles, they are good for you!
This has some truth to it: the Egoscue Tower does cause drastic improvements in posture. Please keep your Tower and continue to use it as your posture and body will thank you. The Tower is a key ingredient in the recipe for a pain free and active life.
I hope you laughed reading this newsletter as I did creating it! Have a wonderful pain free April!
