Everyone knows that it’s better to have good posture, but more and more people have given into the slouching epidemic. There are many reasons to have good posture besides looking better. It aids things like breathing and prevents muscles from getting sore. Stiff muscles can often also hinder posture, but this can easily be solved with regular use of a portable massage chair.
The best-known reason for having good posture is the image that it creates of you. Standing up straight will make you appear confident and in charge. People are automatically more likely to respect and trust you. Unfortunately, people do judge books by their cover, so make sure your cover is one of confidence.
As mentioned previously, having good posture helps you to breathe better. Your lungs will automatically be able to breathe deeper. People with respiratory problems like asthma should have good posture to ease their breathing.
Who knew that standing up straight could help you stay slim? Slouching restricts the abdomen and your digestive system, making it hard for them to do their proper job. Standing and sitting with proper posture lets them function optimally, making your digestive system faster. Good posture can also avoid complications like acid reflux, constipation and other stomach related ailments. Not only will standing up straight help you to prevent bloating, but it will make you seem slimmer than you already are. Your clothes will sit on you better and you will look more youthful and energetic with proper posture.
As mentioned previously, poor posture leads to muscle aches. The back, neck and shoulders are especially susceptible to this. You can use a portable massage chair to alleviate this, but it’s better to prevent it all with good posture. Something as simple as keeping your back straight can save you a lot of pain.
