People often over-compensate for slumping forwards by arching their backs. Don't do this; whether you are sitting or standing, try to maintain a straight back or a gentle S-shaped curve.
This will make you appear slimmer
Regardless of whether you are sitting or standing, one of the all-time most troublesome features of
bad posture is slumped, rounded, or forward leaning shoulders. Keep your shoulders level, lowered, and pulled back.
Try not to sleep on your stomach because this position forces your head to turn sideways quite harshly. You might wake up with a stiff neck because of the strain caused by sleeping in this way. Sleeping on your back or your side is best.
The Best Standing Posture
Head: Keep your head held high and straight, with your chin parallel to the ground. This will elongate your neck.
Shoulders: From a side view, your shoulders should be in line with your ears. Make sure that both shoulders are level with each other
so that one shoulder should not be higher than the other one.
Back: Lift your chest up and lower your tailbone for a gentle S-shaped curve. You should not slouch or arch your back. You will struggle to tuck in your stomach in a slouched or arched position.
Hips: Similar to your shoulders, keep your hips level on either side. Sometimes when your weight shifts between each leg, your hips become uneven.
Try to keep your hips in line with your shoulders and your knees; this will ensure that your weight is firmly centered and that you are not putting any unnecessary pressure on any one body part.
Feet: Ideally, your feet should be facing forward and kept in line with your hips. Try to keep your weight centered in the middle of your feet.
The Best Sitting Posture
Head: If you are sitting at your work desk, it can be tempting to hang your head forward, rest your head on your hands, and poke your head out forward. Each of these positions can strain your neck and back. Keep your head held high and straight, just as if you were standing.
Remember to avoid the appearance of a
double chin by keeping your chin parallel to the ground. If you cannot see your computer screen well, think about raising your desk or lowering your chair. If you are reading a book or newspaper, hold it up higher.
Shoulders and Back: Avoid slouching forward over your desk as this can strain your back. Sit up straight, chest up, tailbone down, and keep your shoulders pulled back. Support your lower back with a cushion.
Legs and Feet: Don't cross your legs or tuck your legs under your buttocks. Keep your thighs straight and place both feet flat on the ground. Remember to adjust the height of your chair if you need to.
When legs are crossed, you reduce circulation to the lower extremities and make
spider/varicose veins worse by reducing the return of blood to the heart.
Get up & walk around every 15-to-30 minutes
Sitting down for too long causes your lower back & hip flexors to become tight leading to
bad lordosis posture which will lead to lower back pain and increased risk of knee, ankle & foot injuries.
