Do You have Poor Posture? (& How to Fix It!)
Poor Posture is an incredibly common problem in today’s world. With the increase in technology and decrease in physical exercise, many people find their posture slipping more than ever before.
While we know that good posture certainly looks better, is it really cause for concern? Take a look at these ways in which poor posture may negatively impact health, followed by some tips for improving it a little more every day.
Pain in the Back, Neck, and Shoulders - Poor posture can cause stiffness or pain in any of these areas. The longer you sit or stand with bad posture, the more pronounced these pains are likely to be.
Slow Digestion - Poor posture is almost always because of slumping or slouching the shoulders and core. This can cause the digestive tract to be pressed, which can make any sort of digestion painful and more troublesome.
Poor Self Perception - Our minds often take cues from the body. If slouching is a constant, our minds get the message that we feel poorly about ourselves, and our self-esteem and perception is likely to take a hit.
