There are numerous benefits associated with good posture. Many people tend to have a whole different perception about posture. As such, they don’t care how good or bad their posture is. They often think that it is only the celebrity, top model or people into entertainment that should care about their posture. Is that really the case? What are the benefits of good posture? This is exactly what I will let you know here. Read on and see some of the benefits of good posture and understand some of those characteristics one may lack when one does not have a good posture.
Benefits Of Good Posture
Improves Your Breath:
Posture naturally affects your breath. When your posture is good, you will be relaxed. When you breathe, you breathe with ease. I will give you a practical demonstration. You are likely seated or lying down while reading this article, stand up, slouch your shoulders. Then, breathe in, notice how the air goes in and the difficulty level and exhale.
Stand the correct way that is, aligning your ears, shoulders and hips. The mirror can help in the alignment. An easy way is to stand backing the wall. Let your head, shoulder blade, hips and back feet touch the wall. Leave the wall and maintain that posture. Now breathe in and out. Notice also the difficulty level. Now, which of them would you prefer? Which of them did you do with less difficulty? You be the judge here!
Improves Your Image:
A good posture improves your image, that is, the way people view you. When I go out, and see people whose posture is not good, I feel like stopping them and letting them know how not too good their posture is. On a second thought, I found out that there are many of them who don’t have good posture. Sometimes I wonder if they look at the mirror before they leave home or if they even have one at all.If you are reading this article and you think your posture is not good or you are not sure if your posture is good, walk straight to the mirror, a full length mirror will be better. Look at yourself, observe the way you look. Imagine you are a different person and the image on the mirror is a different person. Then, access the person on the mirror.
Stand the correct way described above. Then, compare the two images. Which of them would you prefer? You be the judge here again!
Portrays Self Confident:
Good posture portrays self confidence. Most people who lack confidence often have a slouching posture. They (most of them) don’t stand tall.
So, people know if you are confident or not by your posture! Even if you are damn confident and your posture is not good, people will see you as one who lacks confident.
One of the tricks to make people think you are confident is to have a good posture. This means that people will think you are confident when in actual fact you may not be confident.
There are other good posture benefits you may derive from having a good posture. These include being free from neck, back or shoulder pain. Have a good posture today and enjoy all the benefits it got to offer!
