Today’s healthy habit is about your posture, which starts from the tip of your head to the tip of your toes.
Try doing this little experiment for the next few days, watch people of all ages as they are walking. Do they stand straight and tall as they walk or do they seem to bend forward. Where do their shoulders, neck and head position themselves in relation to their spine, hips and legs? Do they all line up in a straight line? When they are walking do all the moving parts seem to move with ease or are some parts stiff and have little to no range of motion?
Our posture is very important to our overall health! When we stand straight and move with ease it allows all of our body parts to function properly. Let’s take for an example your lungs. When you stand straight and tall, shoulders back, head up, it allows the rib cage to be open and the lungs to take a full breathe.
Let’s move down the frame. Again if you stand straight and tall, shoulders back, you also have to have your hips in proper posture which usually engages your core muscles. When your core is engaged it helps to strengthen your back muscles, which in turn prevents back problems.
So how can you begin to obtain a good posture? Start taking notice of how you stand. It isn’t just about how you stand it is also how you sit. You should sit with a straight back feet flat on the floor. Again if you sit all hunched over your organs can not function as well and you are likely in for structural problems down the road.
Besides understanding how your current posture stands, no pun intended, you might need some help in correcting your posture. There are professions who can help you, chiropractors, osteopaths, massage and physio therapist. As well start learning how to do the proper stretches for your body to gain some flexibility.
Don’t delay, take some time and effort to correct your posture.
