Do you find yourself with slumping shoulders, a rounded back and poor overall posture? Have you been having any back or neck pain that could be related to your posture?
We never realize it, but bad postures start building quite early in our life. Few indications are like keeping the head forward or twisted shoulders. Over the time these postures get developed into serious problems.
Adapting correct posture will not just make your looks better and make you confident, it will also improve your health. You will definitely need to work on you bad postures to avoid big health troubles later in your life.
Here are few quick methods which can improve you postures day by day.
You can start with some exercises. Reverse stretching is the most overlooked ways of improving posture. In this, you have to stretch your body in the reverse order of your habitual holding patterns. After being in such a reverse position for 5-10 minutes, the connective tissues of your body which keeps you locked in bad pose will gradually begin to reshape.
Another method would be some supportive daily habits. Actually your habits have the maximum influence on your postures. The habits like how to sit, stand and move are the most important. You need to learn proper habits of sitting if you have a sitting job. Integrating correct sitting positions, active sitting and some exercise in your daily routine will help you in long run to improve your poor postures.
A support brace can also be quite helpful in reminding you to sit and stand in straight positions, though it may not be a complete remedy for your problem of bad postures. A posture support brace will not improve your bad postures but it will surely remind your body to be in correct postures which ultimately becomes a habit and helps in getting rid of bad postures.
