Your posture tells everything about you even before you open your mouth.
You are depressed or shy as your head is down, shoulders rolling forward and arms crossed. You are confident as you are standing tall.
You are bossy as your chest is puffed out and you peer down at me as if to authoritate over me. What you think in your mind appears in your body and posture as clear as day. By changing what you believe and think you can actually change your posture and how you portray yourself to others.
Good posture involves training your body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on supporting muscles and ligaments during movement.
“I correct the posture of every patient I see, starting from their feet all the way to their head. Most patients once I have placed them in their correct posture feel like an alien from outer space for a couple of days until their bodies adjust, as habitually they are addicted to their old posture”
Good posture involves keeping your bones and joints in the correct alignment so that muscles are being used properly and operating from the right length. In doing so this reduces fatigue as your muscles are being used more efficiently, allowing the body to use less energy. Good posture also helps to decrease the abnormal wear and tear of joint surfaces that commonly cause arthritis, decreases stress placed on ligaments, prevents your spine becoming rigid, prevents backache and muscular pain as well as contributing to a good appearance.
