Look Thinner Instantly

How to look thinner instantly with the help of a broomstick

One of the easiest ways to instantly look like you've lost 10 lbs is to improve your posture by having your shoulders pulled back, chest up and out, and your head up and back. By pulling your shoulders back and sticking your chest out and up, your body will also naturally lengthen your stomach and pull it in. This gives the illusion that you've lost 10 lbs! 

Now it may be difficult to hold this position for long periods especially if you're not used to being aware of your posture. 

The typical office worker is hunched over their keyboard with their head in a forward and/or down position and this contributes to the bad posture that everyone is accustomed to.

A simple way to help improve your posture besides being aware of it, is to use a broomstick (or some other similar firm stick object).

Grab the broomstick with both hands and extend out in front of you. The grip you should use will be wider than shoulder width. As you increase the flexibility of your chest and shoulders, you'll want to move your grip in to further increase the stretch. 

Now take the broomstick, bring it over your head and pull it down to your trapezius muscles. Make sure you keep your head up. You should feel a stretch in your chest and shoulders.

Hold this position for as long as you can or as long as you feel comfortable. Do this a couple of times during the day during your breaks and you'll notice your posture improve immediately and look slimmer instantly!

Has anyone noticed how much better they look and feel once you've improved your posture?
