As fun and exciting fashion can be, there are many things that can be detrimental to our overall health that we may not realize. Here are a few of those things to remember.

1.High Heels 

As sexy as those new Jimmy Choo stilettos make your legs look and compliment your look, you may be surprised how much damage they are doing to your body’s natural alignment. Constant walking on the balls of your feet causes your torso to tilt forward and the rest of your body to lean backwards. This creates an immense amount of stress on your spine. The compression on your spinal discs overtime can cause cramping of the toes, calves, and pain in your back and hips.

The Solution: Short heels are back in style! Instead of constantly wearing those 5 inch heels, try to opt for a shorter heel every few days, or even a cute wedge.

2.That BAG! 

Most of us have that fabulous HUGE bag we love to carry and FILL! And because we are creatures of habit, it is likely that you are carrying this statement piece on the same side of your body every time you wear it. This causes an uneven distribution of muscle imbalance,and alignment issues (i.e., one shoulder sitting lower/higher than the other).

The Solution: Instead of grabbing the biggest heaviest bag, next time try something a bit smaller. A cute clutch or wristlet can definitely add a special touch to your look.
