Give Yourself a Tension Test

Forget about the directives to “sit up straight!” and “put your shoulders back!” Try this online Alexander Technique lesson

Right now, at your computer, freeze just as you are. Without moving your mouse, take a mental picture of your body.

Notice . . .

    Your sitting posture . . .

      Are you slouching toward your screen or sitting comfortably upright?

    Your neck and shoulders . . .

      Are they tense or relaxed?

    Your breathing . . .

      Is it shallow and choppy or easy and full?

You're beginning to tune into your body.

Keep going . . .  arrow
