This post is in partnership with Upright Go. I was paid for this post and received the Upright Go device as compensation.
Are any of you worried about your posture? Well, I have naturally sloped shoulders and it runs in my family so I have always been concerned that they will get even more slopped and hunched with age. Posture can make a huge difference in our appearance and in our overall health, so today I am excited to share with you a new posture training device called Upright Go that I have been using and is making me totally aware of how I am sitting and standing.
WHAT IS UPRIGHT GO?
Upright Go is a small device developed to help us build long term proper posture habits. It works with an app that syncs with a small device to create a personal training plan. It uses your age weight, and back pain. As you use this program every day it trains your posture so that good posture becomes instinctive.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1. Download the app from Itunes for Android or IOS, charge the small device, turn it on, then remove the stick it to the middle of your upper back and sync to the app. The app will give you easy step by step instructions.
2. Set your posture then start your training session. You can actually see your posture on your phone screen in the app.
3. When you slouch your Upright Go will vibrate gently on your back reminding you that you are slouching. You can adjust the sensitivity and vibration in the app.
4. After your training, you can continue to track your progress throughout the day. You can also log in to your statistics page to see all your posture stats, goals and how you’ve improved.
WHERE I SLOUCH THE MOST
WHEN APPLYING MY MAKEUP
Have you stopped to think about your posture and where you slouch the most? I have been aware for some time but after training with the Upright Go device I have discovered other places where my posture struggles. Putting on my makeup or doing my morning and nightly beauty routines is definitely an area I can improve on. That little vibration started going off like crazy at my vanity during my Upright training.
IN THE CAR
Boy oh boy, here is another place where that little guy started buzzing me. argh….. I will say that car manufacturers build the seats in our cars for comfort but not for good posture. I would recommend placing your seat in an upright position and experiment using a small pillow at the small of your back. That seems to help me a lot.
WHEN ON MY COMPUTER OR PHONE
Of course, we all know that this is one of the biggest culprits for us all. Depending on how much time we spend on our phones and computers depends on how serious this can be for back pain and other issues. Since I have been blogging for 5 years now, I am on my phone and computer for at least 6 hours and day and sometimes much more. Terrible, Terrible!!
Unlike when I was young now this problem starts as soon as parents let their children use a phone and computer. If they are not corrected with proper posture while using their devices at a young age then by the time they are in their 50’s or 60’s then they could have soooo many back and other related pain issues.
Good posture is proven to decrease back pain, increase productivity, and improve overall wellness. Once your start your training you can also track how you are doing and see the stats immediately right from the app on your phone/IOS.
