Maintaining Proper Posture at Our Apartments for Rent in Mount Dora, FL
Maintaining proper posture throughout the day is actually a significant part of healthy living. It is said that proper posture helps to facilitate breathing and increase concentration and thinking ability. Some experts believe that maintaining proper posture may even help people avoid health complications, like back pain and poor blood circulation.
Here are some techniques that people can use to start maintaining proper posture today:
• When sitting in a chair, it’s best to keep feet on the floor (or use a footrest if feet do not reach the floor), keep knees at or below the level of the hips, relax the shoulders, and keep forearms parallel to the ground.
• When standing, it’s good to keep knees slightly bent, keep feet shoulder-width apart, and keep shoulders pulled backward. Weight should also be borne on the balls of the feet.
• When sleeping, people should sleep with a pillow under their waist if sleeping on their stomach, between their legs if sleeping on their side, or under their knees if sleeping on their back.
It’s not realistic to believe that anyone can completely transform his or her posture overnight. Everyone falls into poor posture habits from time to time. Being aware of one’s posture habits and working to improve them is the best thing one can do.
