👜 How many people know someone who carries a purse on one shoulder? 🙋🏻 Could be you, your sister, a female friend, or maybe even your male friend, bf or husband (yes guys carry man bags too)! I used to carry my bag for years like the left and couldn't figure out why my neck was hurting!
Of course it's worse when your bag is heavy, but even a light purse like mine here causes me to hike up one shoulder. It's just the laws of gravity and our bodies that causes us to raise one shoulder up to keep the bag from sliding off. However by elevating our scapula on one side only causes us to contract our muscles around the shoulder and neck, leading to bad posture, muscle imbalance, and pain! And if you guys have ever carried a heavy bag and feel that strap digging into your shoulder, you know what I mean! Doing this over a long period of time can really ruin our backs and necks, cause us to shift weight unevenly in our body, and ultimately lead to ouch!
The solution? Well if you have to carry a bag of some sort, I've found that having a crossbody bag and draping it across the body is a much better alternative that allows the body to stand with good posture!
Tag someone you think might need this, and don't forget to stand up straight everyone! #strongereveryday #posture #confidence #standtall #fitness #transformationtuesday #bbg #fitness #fitgirls #fitchicks #asiangirl #girlswholift #healthy #fitfam #squat #girlswhosquat #motivation #purse #purses
