The Importance of Maintaining Good Posture
It is said that the best posture is your next posture, which is just a cue for us to move more.
If the posture you’re currently in isn’t comfortable it is time to move or shift into the next one, and that’s how you should live your life. It’s not natural to artificially hold a position for hours on end. That is why you hardly see people with perfect posture and why there is an entire industry trying to sell you chairs, devices, and gimmicks to do just that!
The goal is to optimize and be as aligned as possible through EVERY posture! The only way to do that is through learning and application!
If you’re like most people this is not the first time you’ve tried to do something about your posture. Maybe you have even bought specialized devices just for this. The vast majority of these products will see a few days or a week of use; only to be discarded to some drawer or closet while we continue to slump over our screen or steering wheel.
Doesn’t it make sense to learn how to align ourselves so that posture becomes a reflex that we no longer have to constantly think or worry about? If so then you’re in the right place!!
The most common posture associated with pain are the following:
- Low Back
- Hip Pain
Unless you want to buy a posture product for each of these then it’s time to take it upon yourself to truly learn the importance of good posture. For starters, let’s switch your mindset. Instead of thinking about correcting poor posture, let’s flip that start thinking about growing into a better posture and ultimately a better you.
Importance of Good Posture
We’ve talked about the importance of good posture before, and you can read more about that here. But some of the easiest and quickest benefits you’ll feel are:
- Better breathing
- Lower stress
- Decreased pain
- Increased alertness
- Improved confidence
Mental Benefits of Good Posture
Good posture doesn’t just have the ability to improve the health of your body. Science is uncovering links to other markers of mental and emotional health. For example, taking a skip at lunch as opposed to a slumped over walk improved energy levels. If skipping isn’t your thing, then thinking about having a large and powerful body showed improvements in self-confidence, as well as reduce feelings of anxiety and depression. So think big and proud and you’ll be big and proud! Remember that old saying the body achieves what the mind believes…
Though the benefits are endless, ultimately, you have to decide for yourself what benefits are most important to you.
