Your Health Online | Change Your Posture as You Age
Posture has everything to do with the pains you’ll experience as you grow older. Today’s generation is usually forced to go against how they should sit or stand.
You have to constantly tilt your head forward when working on the computer and you sometimes need to look down when reading a book.
Your neck and back usually pay the price for poor posture. You strain your muscles throughout the day, even without noticing.
One day, you just realize that your body hurts in places you’ve never realized could hurt. You complain about old age and then continue to do nothing about it.
Yes, age may be a factor, but that does not necessarily mean that you cannot do anything about it. Every problem has a solution; you just need to know where to look.
Log online, purchase books, and collect research materials related to good posture. Just so you’ll be further inspired, start by taking a closer look at the rewards you'll reap.
First of which is that you will look thinner with good posture. If you don’t believe this, try standing straight. See your waistline decrease?
That’s because slouching somewhat gathers all the fat in one place, and that is your stomach. See all the love handles when you slouch?
That’s exactly what is does for your body! To be able to stand properly, you need to imagine as if a string on the ceiling was lifting your rib cage.
When your rib cage is lifted slightly, you'll definitely see an inch or two disappear around from your waist.
Of course, probably the greatest benefit you’ll enjoy is looking younger than your age. People just normally assume that those with better posture are the ones who are younger.
Try to take a couple of pictures of yourself. Slump your shoulders in one shot and stand straight in the other.
Ask the people’s opinions. They’ll definitely think that you look better if you carry yourself with grace and poise.
Nothing ages you faster than hunching your shoulders downwards. A strong and straight spine makes you look as if you are still at the prime of your life.
Not only will slouching make you look older, you will also look shorter.
Studies have revealed that a person with good posture exudes strength and liveliness. People just normally assume that those who slouch are just naturally more insecure.
You tell the world a lot about your emotions and your perception of yourself by the way you carry your body. Ask yourself, if you had to approach a person in the crowd, wouldn’t you pick the one who radiates confidence and vitality?
Good posture shows the people that you are proud of who you are and what you are capable of. Poor posture is simply going against nature.
You are telling your joints to position themselves in such a way that they will be positioned awkwardly within your body. This causes injury and you will definitely feel it one day if you are not smart enough to do something about it.
Enjoy your life and improve your body through better posture. It may feel awkward at first, but you will eventually get the hang of it.
Once it is second-nature to you, you’ll see just how much trouble you’ve saved yourself.
