Who all out here carry their purses 👛 or bags 👜 on one shoulder? ⁣⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣ Chanel, Louis Vuitton and what not. ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ I ain't just talking about women but also men who carry their laptop 💻 or messenger bags 💼 ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Ever wondered why does your neck hurt? 🤷‍♀️ Specially on the side you carry your bag.⁣ To no ones surprise it hurts worse when your bag is heavy. 🤦🏻‍♀️ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ *Reason* : Because even the lightest purse causes your shoulder to hike, specially when you walk. It's just the laws of gravity and our body to raise up the shoulder to prevent the bag to slip off the shoulder.⁣⁣⁣⁣ When you elevate your scapula on one side only it activates and contracts the muscles around shoulder and neck, leading to muscle imbalances, poor posture and pain! ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Practicing this over a long period of time will definitely screw your back and neck due to uneven shift of body. ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ *Solution* : When you carry a bag crossing over the body your body stand with a comparatively better posture.! #daactarni
