#WednesdayWisdom: How Old Do You Feel?

#WednesdayWisdom: How Old Do You Feel?

If your spin is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. How old do you feel?

Many of us suffer with stifness and inflexibility as a result of our modern-day occupations and habits. Sitting down for long periods using computers (as I do everyday) can lead to bad posture, aches and pains which left untreated can result in more serious problems later in life.

I'm not sure when the saying 'you're as old as you feel' first originated, but Joseph Pilates was definitely thinking along the same lines when we voiced this paraphrase. I'm sure there are many 30-year-olds who feel old now as a result of bad habits formed when they were very young. And this is only likely to get worse as our lives continue to be impacted by the constant and pervasive use of digital technology.

If you suffer with inflexibility or bad posture you may well benefit from pilates exercises. We've found a few great articles from the 'net which contain a bit more information on the subject, as well as suggestions for which exercises might help. As always, if you're new to pilates (or exercise in general) then it's always best to have a chat with your GP before starting a new regime - and pilates is always best learned under the instruction of a trained pilates teacher.
