Sitting Abdominal Exercise

JENOPTIK DIGITAL CAMERAWith a little bit of creativity, you can strengthen your muscles even while sitting down. Abdominal squeezes, for example, can be performed without a lot of movement. Simply sit upright in your chair, contract your ab muscles, hold for two to three seconds and repeat. With some concentration and proper breathing, you can get a mini workout while sitting at your desk.*

You can tone your side abdominals while sitting too. Start by interlacing your fingers behind your head. Inhale, and as you exhale, lift your left knee and touch it with your right elbow. Switch and repeat at least five times each side.

Watch Out for Children’s Foot Problems

walkOften children’s foot problems go unnoticed because they do not complain about the pain. That is why as a parent, it is helpful to be aware of the signs. Getting tired easily, opting out of activities they once enjoyed and uncoordinated movements could all point to foot problems.*

If you feel like your child might be experiencing foot problems, have them examined by a doctor. By being aware of the signs and following your podiatrist’s professional advice, your child can switch the pain for play!
