Slouching is a side effect of a sedentary lifestyle. And the more time we spend in a stooped position, the higher the risk of getting additional problems: tension in the neck and back, breathing difficulties, poor blood circulation, headaches, and improper functioning of internal organs. This is a disease that will “spoil” you aesthetically, and also cause great harm to your health,
– noted Samoilova.
What affects posture
According to the fitness trainer, posture is also affected by emotions. After all, breathing depends on them, which is associated with the position of the head / shoulders. She explained that a person hides uncertainty, raises his shoulders, draws in and lowers his head, rounds his back, sticks out his stomach. In this case, the tension in the body remains throughout the day. If the situation does not change, the body remembers this state.
