6 Ways to Avoid Bad Posture
Avoid Bad Posture When You’re Juggling LuggageYour tendency: To overload yourself by hanging a heavy bag on your shoulder, toting one in your hand, and dragging another behind you. But narrow and slippery straps on your shoulders or in your hands can tense and fatigue muscles and cut off circulation. Simultaneously pulling a large bag can strain the shoulders and the back by yanking the joints out of line.
The better way: To redistribute the weight by clipping the shoulder bag onto the wheeled bag. Then sling small bags across your body, messenger-style, so your hands stay free. If your heavy luggage doesn’t have wheels, rent a cart at the airport or bring a collapsible one. And try pushing wheeled bags in front of you, like a grocery cart, for more control and better body alignment.
