Posture

  1. 1.  Good Posture ensures that the least strain is placed on muscles and ligaments. Having good posture prevents muscle fatigue and backaches, decreases wear on joints, ligaments, and bones, and contribute to a good appearance.  Good posture facilitates breathing. It naturally enables you to breathe properly. If you breathe properly, your body circulation will improve. Your metabolism will speed up, your body’s energy creating capacity is greater and your body is able to eliminate free radicals and waste materials fast.
  2. 2.  Good posture increases your concentration and thinking ability. When you are breathing properly, you increase your thinking ability too. Remember that our brain requires 20% of oxygen to do its job properly. Thus, our brain functions efficiently when we observe good posture.  Good posture improves your image. Observe people who have good postures. They look good. They look smarter and attractive. They feel confident and give out a certain appeal and aura around them.
  3. 3.  Your posture reflects your self-confidence. If you lack self-confidence, you are not healthy emotionally. Good posture makes you feel good about yourself.  Good posture also makes you avoid health complications. A bad posture results in several complications over time, such as increased risks of slipped disc, back aches, back pain, pressure inside your chest, poor blood circulation.
  4. 4.  Stand up straight.  Think of being a tall and straight. Do not arch your back.  Do not lean forward or lean back. Leaning puts strain on the back muscles.  Eyes forward, not looking down, rather 20 feet ahead.  Chin up (parallel to the ground). This reduces strain on neck and back.  Shrug once and let your shoulders fall and relax your shoulders slightly back.  Suck in your stomach.  Tuck in your behind and rotate your hip forward slightly. This will keep you from arching your back
  5. 5.  Step as close to the front of the chair as you can. Turn and prepare your body for the sitting posture.  As soon as your back leg touches the chair seat, slide one foot back then gracefully lower yourself into the seat, slightly sideways. Your weight should be carried by the thighs of your back leg, not with your knees.  Sit up straight with legs together and heels slightly to the rear. You can sit with legs in front of you, angle your knees to either left or right side, or cross your ankles, but never sit with legs apart, it's a mortal sin to poise. If you're crossing your legs at the knees, there should be no space between the heel and the other ankle.  Place your hands together on your lap.  Lengthen your spine, free the neck, and balance the head above the shoulders. In short, sit tall.
