FIX YOUR POSTURE
Of all the things you hear about health these days and all you can do to stay healthy and feel better, posture is the most underrated topic of conversation.
Obviously, diet is extremely important, as is physical exercise and the reduction of bad habits. But poor posture is a real, often sneaky problem that can lead to a long list of health problems and is a risk of early death.
Energy is the most important thing that your body needs, when you stretch your muscles specially your hip flexors your body provide most energy.
Postural distortion not only affects our physical appearance, but can affect virtually every aspect of our health, from the function of our various internal organs to our lack of energy and even to the quality of our sleep.
5 WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR POSTURE
Good posture isn't just about looks. How we sit, stand, and walk affect both our health and our moods.
Yes, there is a danger lurking in our bodies that's not only hidden from us… but which even doctors are failing to identify.
A) Create a benchmark on your work table by affixing something on your table so you will automatically regain awareness of your posture by creating a reminder reflex for better posture.
B) Upgrading your chair is a good solution. Mounting your chair with an ergonomic lower back support device can make a difference. Adjusting the height of your screen and the position of your keyboard is a "must". consulting your ophthalmologist to redo a prescription for your glasses can prevent straining and thus improve your posture.
C) Take regular breaks for walking and stretching. It is easy to stay focused on various office tasks and sit for hours, but this constant pressure on the spine is not healthy. Take regular breaks (at least every hour) to get up, stretch, walk, and even do light exercises. This will relieve the pressure on your spine, improve blood circulation, and help you avoid falling into bad postural habits.
D) Be aware of your posture. Simply being more aware of your posture can make a huge difference. Try not to slouch, and try to keep your back straight when you are sitting. It will take time, but by the force of time and training it will remain an automatism that you will keep for life and which will play a role in preventing the aging of your posture.
E) Get the relief you need.
What is Your Bad Habit ?
Good posture is about maintaining optimal health and getting relief from the various disorders and diseases that result from stress and unnatural twisting of the spine for many years.
