YOGA to improve POSTURE and FLEXIBILITY
Sitting at a desk or computer all day takes a toll on more than just your eyes. It affects your posture, metabolism, risk of anxiety or depression and can lead to obesity, just to name a few . . .
Bad posture can lead to serious issues like back pain, cardiovascular issues, digestion issues, and eventually changing of the curve of the spine itself, which will create a whole new level of back pain.
Practice These 10 Yoga Poses to Correct Bad Posture:
Yoga Is a Great Way to Help Reverse Bad Posture
By strengthening and stretching the shoulders, chest, back, and abdominals (the areas affected by sitting all day), these yoga poses will help you stand taller, live with an open heart, and help to relieve any discomfort that comes with bad posture from sitting.
Mountain Pose – It is the best pose to learn the correct way to stand.
Cobra Pose – It helps open up the chest area and shoulders; also strengthens the back.
Cat Stretch – Another good posture for the spine that helps make it more flexible.
Child Pose - A deeply relaxing exercise for the entire back and shoulders.
Warrior Pose- It is a very graceful yoga pose that soothes the shoulder plates and also massages the lower back and knees.
Chair Pose - An excellent posture for lower back hips and knees. It relaxes and warms up the knees and hipbones.

Dr Sudesh Kumar looks at the relationship between obesity and diabetes and how researchers are helping doctors better diagnose and treat both conditions.
November 2006 (Medialink) -- Despite the confusion over juice, new research has found that it's not 100 percent fruit juice that makes children overweight.
As a result of two new studies published in the journal Pediatrics, parents can now feel confident about serving their children appropriate amounts of 100 percent fruit juice. Both of these studies confirm that there is no connection between children's weight and consuming reasonable amounts of fruit juice.
One of the studies from the Baylor College of Medicine evaluated data accumulated over several years from a national sample of preschoolers. The researchers determined that consumption of 100 percent juices is not associated with body mass index (BMI) among preschoolers.
The analysis was based on the largest, on-going government database on food consumption (NHANES - National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey).
The findings of another recent study also published in Pediatrics found there was no connection between juice consumption and body weight among normal weight children and among overweight children who consumed moderate amounts of juice. The American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines allow for 1/2 cup juice for children 1 to 5 years old and 1-1/2 cups juice for older children.
When it comes to childhood obesity, researchers agree that more studies are needed on many diet and lifestyle factors, not just beverages.
