Perfect Posture Is A Myth

We all have been taught not to slouch and to stand up straight, and for good reason: Bad posture is the perceived culprit for back pain, fatigue and headaches. In reality, it is a symptom of some underlying problem we don’t know about yet.

If the person has the wrong posture, a physical therapist can examine the core problem, like muscular tightness, spasms or weakness, and provide the relevant exercise routine to follow.

MORE IDEAS FROM THEARTICLE

Constant bad posture, from activities like sitting on the workstation all day, may not give us any pain now but can elongate or tighten certain muscle groups over time, creating problems in the future.

It helps to be posture conscious and perform sitting exercises to maintain blood circulation and muscle movement. Breathing exercises help a lot too.

Your body does great if it is moved around often.

Mood And Posture

The more time a person spends in a bad posture, the more the body’s muscles and ligaments embrace it as normal. 

Human emotion and cognition are closely linked to body posture. And this link operates like a two-way street. Feeling depressed or frightened can cause a person’s head to drop or his posture to become tight and closed, but assuming these poses also seems to promote feelings of depression or fear.
