LOOK IN THE MIRROR! Have you ever looked at yourself as others see you? How surprised we can be when we look at ourselves in a three-way mirror and see all views the front, the sides and the rear. It's the rear view that is apt to be the most a u-matic to our egos. The seat may look bigger than we thought; the hips may look flab -bier; the back line more rounded; and the houlders Dr. Duzet more sagging. A postural survey of healthy young men with an average age of 26.6 years showed that 83 per cant of them have a low right shoulder.

A similar survey. showed an enormously high percentage of young ladies with rounded backs and winged shoulders. Look at yourself in the mirror you are apt to see a passive posture that requires the use of ligaments and the locking bones to keep upright. What's to be done to correct this poor, body balance that mot only bad, but is bad for health? First, correction requires an awareness. See yourself as others see you, and want to do something about it.

Good posture or poor posture is as habitual as any characteristic or mannerism you might have. Second, try to keep in good physical condition with moderate exercise. Physical fitness has both physical and psychological benefits. It keeps your body in tone, gives your body structural independence and at the same time gives you confidence in your appearance. you look good because you feel good, and you feel good because you look good! To improve in anything, you must become aware of it.

Why not become aware of the way your clothes fit in the 'back as well as the Why not become aware of dynamic posture? Your doctor of chiropractic.
