You Seem Tense...: How Our Emotions Affect Our Body.

Last week on the blog we opened up the discussion of the hips (read that post here). I spoke briefly about  the concept of holding onto emotional tension in the hips- this is a topic we have yet to broach here on the Sleekform blog and I feel it’s worthwhile to discuss.  As you know we talk a lot about tension. Like, a LOT. We focus mostly on tension, stiffness and injuries caused from sitting and poorly set up ergonomic workspace because… well, we sell chairs and that just makes sense.  I’ve said it before (and I’m sure I’ll say it a million more times) but our chairs are not a solution to your pain- they are a tool to...

My Hips Don't Lie And I'm Starting To Feel Stiff...

Welcome back to our blog- we’re so happy to have you here. Let’s talk hips. It’s a big topic, so snuggle in kids.    The hips do a lot for us. They make it possible for us to walk, run, jump, sit. They are a key player in the overall strength of our core and they take a beating when it comes to holding tension. Stretching out and opening up the hips can often be a bit of an emotional ride due to the fact that many of us carry a lot of emotional tension in our hips so when we work to release it a lot of that emotion ends up getting released too.   If you’re not following...

How I Fixed My Posture In 5 Days: Diary of A Posture Queen.

To catch you up to date: Last week I received a massage last week and immediately afterward the RMT informed me it was a do or die situation in my upper back and shoulder region. This declaration left me feeling shook and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since- partially due to the rude awakening she presented me with and also partially because I’ve been SO SORE ever since the appointment. It had been so long since my last massage that I completely forgot how stiff and sore you can be for days afterward. Like an idiot, I woke up the next morning and went straight to a workout. The minute I started jogging on the spot...

Real Talk With Robin: I Have Bad Posture.

I obviously spend the majority of my time thinking about posture and ergonomics. I write about it, I research it, and I talk about it with the rest of the Sleekform team all day long. In my spare time I’ve recently begun a whole new training regime to increase my fitness levels and I have been really putting my body through it- I get up every day before 6 am and have been managing to squeeze in 8 workouts a week- it’s a little nuts, but I’ve got #goals. I decided that if I was really going to commit myself to a training program this intense then it would be important to introduce massage therapy into my regime to give...

I’m Never Slouching Again: An Ode to Standing Posture.

Here’s a cold, hard, undeniable fact: Your posture follows you everywhere. I know it’s not groundbreaking stuff, but you may be surprised how many people DON’T read posture blogs and rarely think about their posture at all. Difficult to imagine, I know. Even if you are a posture conscious individual with the world’s most ergonomic work set up- at the end of the day, your posture rides the subway home with you, stands in line at the grocery store with you and comes with you to the park when you walk your pup. If we want to make a real change to our posture and back health that will actually stick, we have to be mindful of it throughout the...
