7 Secret Health Benefits of Good Posture

  1. It’s a subtle exercise for your back and abs.

    Holding a good posture takes effort and makes you use and strengthen your muscles in your back and abs.

  2. It greatly improves your breathing.

    A good posture makes room for your lungs to function at their best – rather than being squashed when you hold your body in a slouch. Good lung function will have a healthy impact on all aspects of the body’s function.

  3. It’ll protect your organs, bones, joints and muscles.

    Holding a correct posture will help reduce unnecessary strain and pressure on these body parts which occurs when the body is placed in an uncomfortable and unnatural position. Many neck and back pains develop from issues of poor posture.

  4. It’ll protect your spine.

    Often the spine will become fixed in an abnormal position if we do not hold ourselves correctly. This can lead to the constriction of blood vessels and nerves and  problems with the joints, discs and muscles. The spine is an important part of the body to take care of – a good posture eliminates many of the health problems that can develop when the spine has unhealthy mobility.

  5. It prevents arthritis.

    Often when we have pa poor posture, we place pressure on our joins in unnatural ways which leads to them wearing down abnormally. This in turn cal lead to arthritis. A good posture gives our joins the change to function at their best.

  6. It helps you use your muscles more efficiently.

    This happens because your bones and joints will be in the correct alignment. As a result, you are likely to feel more energetic since you body will require less energy to move about.

  7. It can have a dramatic impact on the way you feel.

    When people hold themselves in a good posture, rather than a slumped one, they send signals to their brain that make them feel happier and more confident. It’ll also change the way that people see you – you’ll appear more confident and assertive too. And it could even make you look thinker and appear taller since you’ll be using your abs to draw in your stomach muscles and you’ll be standing up straighter.
