When we talk about physical health, the first thing that comes into our mind is diet and exercise. Exercises especially have a lot to do with posture. If we don't move around much or if our body stays in the same position for long periods of time, then our posture can change for the worse.
There can be a variety of factors that lead to poor posture. It doesn't happen overnight though. Poor posture is a result of habits that have formed a routine. It is not just the looks that matter when talks about maintaining proper posture make the rounds. In fact, it has everything to do with health too. And with work making so much of the schedule in our daily lives, taking care of posture is more important now than ever.
Our work lives need to be taken into account because spending so many hours on the chair can lead to back problems. Eventually, sitting in one position all the time can deform the body. Fortunately, if you look out for a few signs, then you can help keep yourself fit. A few signs include pain in the neck, back, or shoulders, the head getting tilted in a manner that it bends forward and gets low, and the same tilted-shifted lowering shape for the back.
If you are able to maintain a proper posture, there can be a number of benefits. Not just in terms of looks, but proper posture can ease breathing problems and also decreases levels of stress. The infographic below features a few ways to improve your posture during various positions.
