6 Perks of Having Good Posture

“When you were younger, did your mother ever nag you for slouching and tell you to β€œSit up straight!” ☝🏻

Leave a β€˜πŸ˜…β€™ if you experienced this!

Well, she sure was right… 😌

She was setting you up for great posture πŸ˜‰ But not all of us listened (oops). Here’s how good posture can help you:

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Better Breathing

When you slouch, it affects your ability to breathe deeply as it shortens the front of your body 😬

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Pain Prevention

When you have good posture, the muscles do what they are designed to do – to support your spine βœ… Slouching puts unnecessary stress on muscles leading to pain in the neck, shoulders, and back 😟

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Better Digestion and Circulation

Slouching leads to compression on your stomach, intestines, and liver – interrupting the flow of digestive juices! This can lead to issues like constipation, and GERD (which are not fun! ❌)

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Self-Confidence

Great posture gives off the impression to others that you are confident! πŸ’― Whereas, slouching often communicates a lack of self-esteem. We all wanna rock on with confidence, right?

πŸ‘‰πŸ» Energy Efficiency

Your muscles work harder when you slouch – because they’re in an unnatural position! Don’t waste your energy – start standing tall and strong! πŸ’ͺ🏻

☝🏻 So, by now you should be convinced that a proper posture not only looks attractive – but affects other areas of health too!

Do you struggle with maintaining a proper posture? Or do you have pain associated with poor posture?
