Solutions for Bad Phone Posture

Solutions for Bad Phone Posture

December 17, 2015

It has become an epidemic. People walking, on the bus, in classrooms – all bent down to look at their phone screens. The Huffington Post has published an article with some suggestions to fix bad phone posture (iHunch) by Harvard psychologist Amy Cuddy.

“Cuddy writes that this position is detrimental to our body because when we lean forward 60 degrees or more to scroll through Instagram or Snapchat, our necks are forced to support the additional 10 to 12 pounds that our heads weigh, which increases the strain on our necks to a whopping 60 pounds.

This may explain, she writes, why August is seeing more and more teens come in with the “dowagers” humps that he used to only see on elderly women.”
