Our lifestyle doesn't allow us to halt and think about our fitness. We never look up from our work and rarely wonder what posture are we in. Thus, the flexibility of the muscles gets damaged. Thereby, these 5 simple methods will help you to keep your posture in check-
In this monotonous lifestyle, all we care about is the job at hand. Seldom do we care about our posture and thus, some of our muscles, under the strain of wrong posture, become rigid and inflexible.
If you have your back straight, shoulders square, chin up, chest forward and stomach pulled, and if you can draw a straight line from your earlobe through your shoulder, hip, your knee and ankle, it is then that you are standing in a good posture.
In order to maintain their strength, work those muscles of upper back and shoulders. They will help you maintain the right posture.
If you ought to work for long hours, sitting at a place, stretching is the rescue for you to keep them strong.
If your neck hurts after spending a long time at the desk, raise your hands up- elbows at right angles to your body, and touch your shoulders with your hands. This will relax all the rigidness and make you feel relaxed.
Yoga does the overall enrichment of your body. It helps in strengthening the core muscles and thereby maintain the posture and health.
