10 Keys to Looking as Young as You Feel
One of the most effective ways to maintain strong bones: weight-bearing exercises, like squats, weight-lifting, and jogging, says Strickland. Equally important: strengthening your core muscles through activities such as Pilates and yoga, which can improve posture and balance.
Poor posture can worsen spinal compression, says New York City chiropractor Karen Erickson. The next time you find yourself slouching, try this (or try it right now): Stand up straight with your shoulders pulled back and your stomach tucked in. Avoid tilting your head forward or backward, keep your knees slightly bent and balance your weight equally on both feet. Feel the difference? Looking good!
