It’s Not Okay to Have a Bad Posture!

Get Freedom From Neck and Shoulder Pain

Most people don’t realise this, but they tend to make many posture-related mistakes in their day-to-day lives. The way you sit across your computer at work or how you walk – any physical activity you participate in has to be done in an appropriate manner. If you slouch too much or keep your neck too high, anything that has got to do with your posture can have dramatic effects on your well-being.

Let us take a look at three stretching exercises that can help you maintain the perfect posture at all time:

1) Stretch your neck: This is perhaps the most common and easy exercise ever known to mankind. You don’t even need to go to a gym for this. Just stretch your neck sideways and up and down for at least 5 minutes every day. This will not only ease your already tight muscles but also give you instant relief from the aches.

2) Drag your shoulders backwards: Hunching too much can cause your back muscles to harden. In addition to this, your shoulders also get affected negatively. To reduce the physical aches caused by this bad posture, all you need to do is lie on your stomach, place your hands at a 90 degree angle and drag your shoulders backwards. Hold the position for 5-6 minutes. Repeat this exercise at least 4 times every day.

3) Do Bhujangasana: This yoga asana is apt for those who have a prominent hunchback. By doing this asana, you will be able to rectify the ‘C’ shaped structure of your back to a great extent. You can try the anti-cobra exercise – stretching yourself by making a concave mirror-like position.

Make sure you take up only those exercises that ease your pain and help you maintain a better body structure. Remember, don’t over-exercise and certainly, don’t try to do all exercises at the same time. Whatever exercises you do should make you fit and give you a proper shape, not worsen your current state.
