Daily aches and pains can feel unavoidable, but we can start feeling better by moving better. Everyone knows we need to move more, but few know how to get each of our joints moving better so that moving more often-and more of our body parts-becomes easier and easier over time. Movement comes naturally to the body; we're just out of the habit. With a little guidance and practice, moving more can leave you feeling revitalized…even joyful!

Biomechanist, movement teacher, and bestselling author Katy Bowman provides simple and funny instructions supported by more than 80 photos and a dozen illustrations that will have you rethinking your position everywhere!
• Align your head while looking at your phone to avoid a "tech neck"
• Find more ribcage flexibility for better breathing
• Open tight shoulders by positioning your elbows when driving or at a computer
• Vary your carrying style for a stronger core
• Lower the heels of your shoes for strong, supple ankles
• Switch up the way you walk for happier knees and hips
• Care for your hips and psoas muscles by sitting differently
• Adjust your pelvic tilt for a stronger pelvic floor and glutes
• Stand in a way that keeps your feet and lower back happy
• Change your sleep-shape to wake up feeling refreshed
• Find even better form in your regular yoga, Pilates, or fitness workout

Professionals, experienced exercisers and new-to-movement newbies alike will discover the big and little ways our body parts move. Rethink Your Position explains how to check the way different areas are moving now, includes precision exercises to get important parts moving better, and shows how making small changes can increase your physical activity all day long-not only at the gym, but at the office, in the kitchen, on a walk with friends…even while you're sleeping.
