If your grandmother always told you to sit up straight, she was doing you a favor. Good posture has a variety of health and wellness benefits. Just ask our chiropractors in Tampa. Slouching, on the other hand, puts unnecessary stress and strain onto your muscles and joints, causing pain and stiffness.
If you practice good posture regularly, you will enjoy:
Standing up tall gives you the appearance of having self-esteem and self-worth, which in turn will cause the people around you to treat you better, further boosting your confidence!
Without all that pulling and straining from slouching, you will have less overall pain, especially neck and back pain.
Pain and loss of blood flow due to poor posture can wear you down over the course of a day, leaving you feeling exhausted. But by practicing good posture, you won’t feel so worn down by pain and will have the energy to spare.
Better Results from Exercise
Proper posture allows your blood to circulate more efficiently, meaning your workout will dig deeper than it ever has before. You’ll see the effects in your results, which will also show up quicker.
Less pain and better results from exercise will add up to better sleep in the long run. With no neck and back pain to keep you up at night plus all those feel-good chemicals doing their thing in your brain post-workout, you’ll catch some high-quality zzz’s that help your body heal and restore.
