31012705 - friends proposing champagne toast at weddingThe season is upon us. Graduations, weddings and summer parties are getting under way, and while celebrating with your family and friends is fantastic, sitting through all those ceremonies can be rough on your spine.

With that in mind, we thought we’d share some tips to keep your spine in tip top shape as you sit through ceremony season.

Ditch the high heels

It’s so tempting to wear cute, fancy shoes to these type of events, but leave them at home in favor of flats. Wearing heels for a prolonged period puts a ton of stress on your spine. Not to mention that they can be dangerous on the dance floor or sinking into grass. Wear something a little more sensible to stay safe.

Sit as best you can

Seating on a hard church bench, a folding chair or a tight auditorium seat is obviously not ideal. Do what you can to sit ergonomically. Try to get as much support as you can for your back, and sit with your feet flat on the floor and your knees at a 90-degree angle.

Stand up and shake it off

After sitting through the ceremony, make sure you get up and move around a bit. Take a little stroll if you can to get your muscles loose. Try to get up and give your body a break often — and maybe even hit the dance floor!

Go light on the booze

Alcohol is a major dehydrator, and can decrease the amount of spinal fluid and joint lubrication. Not to mention that drinking can make you much more accident prone and clumsy. Have a drink or two, but stay within a sensible limit. And be ABSOLUTELY sure that you have a designated driver or a ride home. A car accident can do damage long beyond your celebration day.

Play it safe at your celebrations and keep your spine in shape so you can enjoy your summer!
