The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
I used to have a job where I handwrote receipts to college alumni donors. Kitty and Katherine would comment on my posture. They thought I was a ballerina! But why did my low back always hurt, still? Yes, it probably had a little bit to do with my core strength. Yes, it probably had a little bit to do with my flexibility and mobility, especially my hips.
I know now, that it had a lot more to do with my posture. Even though I was always told I had great posture! I carried myself so erect!
I didn’t realize I had POSTURAL ATROPHY. (I’ll explain in a minute exactly why, even though I visually appeared to have great posture.)
Recently, Janette a grandma that’s in my coaching community, reached out to me because she was developing low back and hip pain. She had been taking care of her grandkids a lot more in the recent weeks, and was carrying a toddler frequently on one hip. When she wasn’t carrying the toddler, she would sit down to get some relief. She knew she was exerting herself a lot more in the recent weeks, but couldn’t quite pinpoint why her back was hurting so badly!
She tried to stretch it and get her husband to give her a back rub, but the pain wasn’t going away.
I said, “Janette, most likely you’re experiencing some postural atrophy, just like I had, and once we correct that… the pain will be far more likely to resolve.”
What I like to call “Postural Atrophy” is a condition in which the ideal position of key joints through your torso and pelvis are no longer aligned properly. Basically it’s a breakdown of how your skeleton, especially your torso, is designed to line up.
In 2018, researchers from Japan confirmed yet again what other spine researchers around the world have discovered: poor posture may lead to low back pain from a mechanical point of view because it exerts a large mechanical load on the low back and significantly increases the compressive forces on the intervertebral discs. Not only did they confirm that the posture of your spinal segments matters, but the postural symmetry and alignment of the pelvis place a major role in the presence of low back pain.
So what causes this and how can You avoid it?
Real quick, let’s remember my 3-part formula for a body that feels great for years to come - To easily remember it, I’m calling it the “PSF framework”.
