We spend most of our lives breathing to shallow and not through our belly's. Breathing deep for 5 min a day like in the video below, will help with your stress and your back pain. However you don't need the pillows demonstrated in the video. Lying flat on your back with your feet on the ground will be fine. Try for 2 weeks and notice the difference. Your body will thank you

 Myofascial Release Part 3 I got some feedback from readers that I’m writing a little too technically.  Sorry everyone, when I get in science mode it’s hard to get out!  This time around I’ll try my best to make things as understandable as possible, but feel free to comment with questions or requests for further explanation.

Lay down supine (on your back) with your feet placed near your tailbone.  Place hands under the arch of your back, about 4 fingers should fit.  Remove fingers and feel the neutral spinal position.  Then, press the lower back down and round or tuck the tailbone while squeezing abdominals.  Next, arch the back and lift the tailbone while squeezing the back muscles.  Repeat, you can also do this movement standing.

One truly amazing thing about the body is that it will allow you to compensate for bad posture with more bad posture. At first it could just be a forward head, a locked out knee or a rib cage popping forward. Next,your body must adapt by repositioning another part of your body. One muscle lengthens another part shortens to create imbalances in our bodies. Eventually you get an achy back, a tight feeling in your neck or a full blown injury.
