Walking through the mall, each person involuntarily faced his own reflection in the window and wondered: "What kind of hunchback from Notre Dame?" The realization that this is your reflection comes quickly, makes you straighten up and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. After a couple of meters, attention dissipates, and, hunched over our backs, we involuntarily assume the previous position. How can you keep your back straight if you always have to focus on it? We will tell you how to achieve beautiful posture with simple tricks that you can do anywhere.
The modern rhythm of life forces every person to carry a lot of things every day: books, useful little things, a wallet, cosmetics. Often, a girl's bag weighs about three kilograms. The accessory hangs on one shoulder almost all the time. This negatively affects posture and overall back health.
The most correct option in this case is a backpack. They are in trend, and every fashionista will be able to choose a functional accessory to her taste. However, backpacks don't always fit the look. If you do not want to change your favorite bag, then try to change the shoulder on which it hangs every 10 minutes. This will help distribute the load evenly. You will notice that your back will be less sore and tired.
Today, everyone spends at least a couple of hours sitting at a computer. Alas, this also negatively affects posture. Every day you begin to slouch more and more, not noticing it. This is especially true for people who constantly work at the computer.
We advise you to get a special stand for your monitor or laptop. So the screen of the device will be at the level of your eyes and you will not have to bend over and load the cervical back.
If you don't want to spend money on a stand, then you can build it yourself. A stack of books or a shoebox will not give way to a special device in terms of functionality, and your back will thank you.
Posture can be affected by the posture in which you normally sit. Especially the cross-legged position. Pay attention to your back the next time you want to sit like this. Your posture at this moment will surprise you unpleasantly. In addition, this posture has a bad effect on blood circulation.
It is best to sit like this: your shoulders and hips should be at the same level, and your feet should be completely on the floor. Try not to tilt your head.
Now let's talk about simple and effective exercises that will help keep your back straight. Give these exercises 5-10 minutes every day, and the visual changes will not keep you waiting.
You can do exercises while sitting on a chair. With your left hand touch the right side of your head and bend your left ear towards your left shoulder. Hold this position for 10-20 seconds. Repeat the exercise 5 times and move to the other side.
Another exercise to help stretch your pectoral muscles. Yes, it is often because of them that your posture deteriorates.
Sitting on a chair, place your hands on the back of the chair and fold them into the lock. Fix the position, stretch your chest up, hold for 8-10 seconds. Repeat 5 times.
