USE A STANDING DESK
Avoid sitting down for long hours. If you work at a desk all day, consider getting a standing desk. This will encourage you to move around more often.
DO UPPER BODY EXERCISES
Act as if you’re pulling or rowing or use other exercises to pull the shoulder blades down. In addition, you should stretch and move to lengthen the muscles in front of the body. This includes your biceps, forearms and large muscles above your hips.
It’s important to know how to stand correctly. You can prevent posture problems by standing up tall. Act as if you’re standing up against a wall to have your height measured. Keep your head straight and tuck your chin in.
DON’T SLUMP OR SLOUCH AT YOUR DESK
It may be comfortable to lean back or slouch at your desk, but this may damage your posture. Your internal organs will be compressed, taking a toll on your breathing and digestion. Instead of slouching and leaning back, sit upright and put a lumbar cushion behind your back.
When you go to bed at night or take a nap during the day, don’t forget about your posture. Avoid using a soft, saggy mattress. Instead, sleep on a firm mattress that maintains your spine’s natural shape.
BECOME CONSCIOUS OF YOUR POSTURE
You must be aware of how you stand, sit and carry yourself throughout the day. Remember that posture is a product of habit. When you’re conscious of your bad habits, you’ll work to change them and start new ones.
MAKE SMALL IMPROVEMENTS DURING THE DAY
You can make steady progress towards better posture if you spend about five minutes at a time working on your posture during the day. For instance, start by maintaining an upright sitting posture for five minutes every morning. Do this until you can sustain it for a longer period.
