Stand Tall: Simple Ways to Improve Your Posture

If there’s one thing that can give you more confidence, make you look and feel better, and even improve your health, it’s having great posture. Unfortunately, many of us do not stand as tall and proud as we could, especially those of us that spend a lot of time sitting at a desk or whatever. More and more of us slouch than ever before and not only is it not a good look, but it could even lead to health problems like osteoporosis in the future.

The good news is there are lots of simple things we can all do to improve our postures and stand tall…

Stop Slouching

Slouching is the worst thing you can do for your posture. Over time it can lead to you putting extra stress on your spine, which could cause it to become painful or more curved. If you stop slouching, you can look more comfortable in your clothes, but more importantly, you will feel better and be less prone to back pain, too.

Use a Standing Desk

It’s hard not to develop poor posture when you spend 8 hours or more each day working at your desk. One thing you can do is to use cushions to prop you up and keep you straight, but something that is even better than that is the standing desk. If you work standing instead of sitting, you will naturally improve your posture and maybe even improve your general health too.

Adjust Your Car Seat

Many people find it comfy to recline their car seats so that they are further back but this can lead to poor posture and poor health. If you are going on a long journey, what you should really do is move your car seat as close to the steering wheel as you can comfortably manage. Then, ensure that your knees are bent a little at hip length so you can feel comfy while improving your posture when you do finally stand up again.

Wear Lipstick

This might sound REALLY weird, but studies have found that women who wear lipstick on a regular basis have better posture than those who don’t.  Crazy, right?  It is thought that the stretching posture that women adopt when they are applying their favorite matte liquid lipstick helps to improve coordination and balance. This, in turn, causes them to stand a bit taller than they usually would, thus improving posture. So wear your lipstick regularly, with pride!

Ditch the Heels

Yeah, they’re cute and they make your legs look amazing but try saving your heels for those special occasions when flats simply won’t do. Even though they look amazing, heels can be really bad for a woman’s posture over time. They force you into unnatural stances, pushing your spine forward, so that you may appear hunched over. Get a cute pair of ballet flats instead- even if you have to keep them in your purse to change out for events.

Improve your posture and your whole life will improve too!
Until Next Time...
