Laughter is good for our health. Since today is April Fools Day, I thought an April Fools Day Newsletter would get a good laugh or at least an interesting reaction from all my wonderful clients. I hope everyone figured out the newsletter was a joke and didn't think I had 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.
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!
REI put a lot of time and effort into this April Fools joke, but the video is well worth checking out. Watch it here.
If only it was that easy: sit back on the couch and slouch through several movies a day or a whole season of Breaking Bad and watch your health improve. No TV is bad, exercise is good. Keep moving!
This has some truth to it: the Tower does cause drastic improvements in posture. Please keep your Towers and continue to use them 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 got a laugh out of this, as I sure had fun making it all up! Happy April Fools Day and Happy Easter!
