AN EXTRA-INCH (OR TWO!)

STRUCTURE TESTS

TEST 1

 

Stand as tall as possible with your ears over the centre of your shoulders, hips and heel bones. 

 

Is this comfortable or uncomfortable? How long can you stand this way?

 

What happens when you relax, do you lose 1-2 inches in height?

 

If you can relax and not drop in height, congratulations, if not and you want to live effectively you need to make changes. 

TEST 2

Stand side on so that you can see your reflection.

Imagine a plumb-line dropping vertically to the ground from the centre of your ear.

Check that this line also drops through the centre of your shoulder, divides you spinal curves...

through the centre of your hip, behind (just) your knee and in front (just) of your ankle. 

Also, check that the 'plane' across your pubic, hip bones and belly button is perpendicular to the floor.

TEST 3

When driving sit as tall as possible and adjust your mirror accordingly.

See how long you can drive for and how easy it is to drive before having to re-adjust the mirror back to its original position.
