Cactus

Fit Friday 10/23/2015 – You are NOT a cactus!

human beings are not cacti, for though we have spines, we still need water ~ Anon

Headaches, neck and back pain, difficulty breathing and digestive issues can all result from poor posture.  Further, slouching can exacerbate feelings of depression and stress.

Combine this with the effects of not drinking enough water – decrease in mental alertness, increase in irritability, and impaired hand-eye coordination, and you have a recipe for a disaster.

Fortunately, there’s an app for that!

notCacti, available for ios, allows you to program reminders to straighten out your posture, and to drink water.

Bonus:  location reminders mean you can program the app to only remind you when you are at work.
