YOUNG – We all want to stay or at least look young ? Well we can do alot just by keeping a good posture, yes not magic creams etc., When we keep the correct posture it can take years of us, the correct posture can be better than botox , do you have a sedentary lifestyle, because if you do it could be making you look much older than you are.
You should, always walk around and stand, when you sit for long periods of time, the reason for this is while sitting your hamstrings and hip flexors will become tight and this will weaken the muscles supporting your spine. You should always take your phone to eye level , when texting and not continually bend forward toward the phone. You should always be able to see your computer screen straight in front of you, and not by bending your neck. Let your feet be flatly on the floor and your hips higher than your knees, and your knees bent.
You should not wear high heels all day, they shift your gravity and affect your posture, you should change the heel sizes, a variety is much better. You should not, use your laptop on your knees, leaning forward all the time, this will give you stiff shoulders, neck and back muscles, and will form a rounded back.You should not, carry the world around with you in your handbag, this affects your stance and posture , heavy things are much better in a rucksack.
To improve your posture all you need is a wall, stand upright to the wall, with your shoulders heels and head touching it, hold for 10 seconds, step away, holding the same posture, your body and memory will have the sensation of the wall being there.
When you stand straight, with a good posture, you will look taller and younger, when you have a bad posture, it shows in everything you do, and can also tell alot about you to another person.You will also suffer from pain in the neck and shoulder area, if you observe an older person who does not hold good posture, you will see hunched shoulders, saggy tummies, rounded back and discomfort. So remember if your wish is to look younger longer, your posture plays a big part of that, straight spine head held high and away you go, It’s a great start.
