Sit Up Straight, You're Slouching!
"Sit up straight, you're slouching" -Your Mom
What exactly good posture and why is it important, you ask?
Defined by the Medical Dictionary, Posture is the position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while standing, sitting or lying down.
Good posture involves training your body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on supporting muscles and ligaments during movement or weight-bearing activities.
Some benefits of good posture include (via Cleveland Clinic):
- Strain prevention and reduction of muscular back pain
- Avoiding abnormal spinal position
- Can help evade Arthritis
- Reduces stress on your ligaments that support your spine
- Enables the proper use of muscles by keeping alignment, and decreases fatigue
- Contributes to a good appearance, naturally.
