Everyone's requirements for themselves are different, but they are almost the same. Because if you want a healthy body, you need to keep your health. As we all know, we must have our own elegant posture, including their own daily behavior. Elegant posture usually not only looks beautiful, but also greatly benefits the health of the body. But if the wrong posture is used to it, it will hurt the body a lot. What should we do?
Good posture, good body
The most intuitive advantage of good posture is to make you more temperament: standing upright, you will appear more slim and tall; posture will also affect other people's views on you. People sitting with straight shoulders look relaxed and confident, while people sitting on chairs look lazy, cold and distant.
Good posture can improve bone health. When you sit down, the excess pressure is concentrated on the neck and spine, which may cause slight back pain after a long time; bad walking and running posture will easily wear the joints, and the spine will also be subject to "bad pressure" from all directions, thus compressing nerves and blood vessels.
Good posture can also make the internal organs "breathe". Whether sitting, standing or sleeping, as long as the posture is correct, the viscera can be comfortable in the body "home.". For example, when standing with straight shoulders, the stomach will relax naturally, which can reduce abdominal pain. On the contrary, if you bend over, the support that the bones form will twist and squeeze into the internal organs.
In daily life, the most common, the most harmful seven bad posture
Bowing your back and stretching your head hurt your body the most. Almost everyone is sitting in front of the computer in the wrong posture: bending back, stretching neck to watch the monitor, sitting for hours. This can cause severe pain in the spine, back and neck.
Correct posture: choose a seat with adjustable height and back angle; keep the monitor too close or far away from the seat; keep knees, thighs, back and elbow joints at 90 degrees when sitting; consciously retract chin to open chest and shoulder, which is conducive to smooth breathing.
Sitting down affects breathing and digestion. Bai Yulong, an associate professor of rehabilitation medicine at Huashan Hospital Affiliated to Fudan University, said: "sitting lazily in the sofa seems to relax. In fact, this not only compresses the living space of internal organs, but also easily leads to lumbar muscle strain."
Correct posture: choose a slightly higher, harder sofa. If the sofa is too soft, you can add a cushion; if the seat is too deep, you may as well put a back pillow behind your waist to make your back upright and comfortable.
Back pain was induced by sitting on the cheek. Many people are used to sitting on their cheeks, especially in meetings or thinking. This is a very disadvantageous position for the cervical spine, and it is easy to induce headache.
Correct posture: when thinking about the problem, walk or put your hands on the back of the neck, do some neck twisting movement, to ensure the blood flow of the brain, is the best way to keep thinking active.
To one side of the spine. On buses and subways, people standing askew and heads drooping can be seen everywhere. This posture will cause uneven stress on both sides of the lumbar spine, resulting in low back pain.
Correct posture: legs upright, legs and abdomen slightly tightened, center of gravity slightly forward, eyes flat in front, do not always look at the ground. If you need to stand for a long time, exchange the center of gravity with "rest" every 10 minutes.
Lower head with chest affects heart and lung. Lu Yifan, a professor of sports medicine at Beijing Sports University, said that many people just look down at the road when they walk, "this way is the easiest way to bring fatigue."
Correct posture: head up and look at the front, do not directly "throw out" the lower leg when stepping, but let the thigh drive the lower leg. Also try not to walk in big strides, use "small trot" to increase the frequency of leg movement, which is good for active cardiopulmonary function.
walk down the stairs:
Kicking on the joints of your legs. Some people walk down the stairs with unsteady steps, which especially hurt their knees.
Correct posture: the knee and toe should be vertical. For example, when stepping out of the right foot, the right knee should be relaxed as far as possible, so that the weight of the body can sink to the bottom of the foot. When going downstairs, it's best to land on all your feet and avoid shaking from side to side.
Only lift the leg and knee. Why do some people look light when they run, while others are sluggish? Lu Yifan said that the ugly running posture not only hurt the body, but also easy to fatigue.
Correct posture: when running, the leg is "sent out" through the linkage of the upper arm, hip joint, thigh and lower leg. When landing, the knee joint is kept slightly bent, and the sole of the foot "rolls on the ground" from the heel to the forefoot. This posture is the most labor-saving, low knee joint pressure, and the most sufficient exercise for heart and lung.
Take a side photo every month
Bad posture may indicate some diseases or abnormalities of the body. For example, asymmetric muscle strength on both sides of the body can cause people to stand up and sit upright; problems with the respiratory system may make you inhale too hard, thus forming the habit of containing chest.
Sit down and take a deep breath. Before walking or sitting down, take a deep breath with your nose to feel the opening of your abdomen and chest. Then "fix" this position and start working and walking. If you stick to it for a month, you will find that your sitting and walking posture will be greatly improved.
Take a side photo every month. If there is an excessive inclination of the shoulder in the buttocks, look forward. The change of cervical curvature will affect your appearance. If you find the shape change in the photo, you should correct it in time.
Turn your shoulders for 10 minutes a day. "Many women may find it difficult to buckle back on the bra. This is because the shoulders of modern people are leaning forward and more, causing back muscle strain. " Natalie kodova said that slowly turning your shoulders back can relax your back and neck, and help open your chest and breathe more fresh air.
You have strength in your abdomen to stand up straight. The strength of the abdominal muscles is weak in most people who are standing in a "slouching" position. Sit ups, belly rolls and Pilates training can help you stand straighter and less tired.
