The Best Chair to Keep a Good Posture and End All Your Body Pains


Remember how your mom always told you to keep a good posture by standing up straight? She knew what she was talking about! When you slump and slouch, the bad posture that results is a leading cause of back and neck pain, aching shoulders and even headaches.


As you might suspect, sitting or standing for long periods with bad posture stresses and strains muscles throughout your body, eventually leading to muscle imbalances as they become progressively used to being out of proper alignment.


Plus, poor posture has also been linked to conditions you’d probably never associate with a little bit of slouching, like:


  • Increased feelings of depression
  • Lower energy
  • Problems at work, because you appear less confident
  • Slowed digestion and constipation
  • Increased risk of premature death, diabetes and heart disease
  • Making you look fatter
  • Decreased circulation
  • Lower self confidence
  • Increased stress


What is Poor Posture? Three Common Examples


Millions of Americans have chronically poor posture, and virtually everyone has improper posture at one point or another. If you have back pain, neck pain or tense muscles, there’s a good chance your posture could be improved. If you’re wondering, what, exactly, constitutes poor posture, here are some of the most common examples:


Hunchback: This is common when sitting hunched over a computer and leads to an excessively curved back. Eventually this posture will weaken your upper back muscles and lead to neck, shoulder and back pain.


Rounded shoulders: This is also common while sitting and can cause your chest muscles to tighten and your upper back to weaken.


Forward head: Your head should be in line with your shoulders and spine, but many people hold their head forward while driving, sitting and standing. This can cause tightness in your back and neck muscles, along with neck pain.


How to Keep a Good Posture in 17 Steps


It’s pretty instinctual, when reading an article about proper posture, to straighten up and put your shoulders back. But there’s actually more to correcting your posture than this.


Here’s a simple guide to correct your posture while sitting, standing and even sleeping.


How to Keep a Good Posture When Standing


  1. Stand tall with your feet shoulder width apart, your knees slightly bent


  1. There should be a small curve in your lower back, but don’t arch too much or lean back — your goal should be a neutral spine


  1. Your shoulder blades should be down and back, your chest lifted


  1. Keep your chin level so that the highest point of your body is the top back of your head


  1. Use your stomach muscles for extra support in keeping your body straighter


  1. Keep your jaw and neck relaxed


Try the wall test:


  • Put the back of your head, your buttocks and shoulder blades against a wall
  • Your heels should be six inches from the wall
  • The gap between your neck and small of your back and the wall should be less than two inches — a larger gap indicates bad posture


How to Keep a Good Posture When Sitting


  1. Sit with your feet resting flat on the floor and your hips bent at a 90-degree angle; your knees should be slightly lower than your hips


  1. Your lower back should be arched slightly


  1. Keep your chest lifted and your chin level (a book should be able to rest on your head)


  1. Your shoulders should be back and relaxed


  1. Avoid slouching, leaning forward, crossing your legs or trying to sit with your spine perfectly straight


  1. Stand up frequently, as it’s difficult to maintain proper posture during prolonged sitting


  1. Be sure your chair supports proper posture


How to Keep a Good Posture When Sleeping


  1. Choose a firm mattress with comfortable support


  1. Ideally, sleep on your side using pillows for support; try a pillow between your legs, on your back or under your knees


  1. Avoid sleeping on your stomach, which puts pressure on the vertebrae in your neck)


  1. Avoid sleeping with too many stacked pillows, which may strain your neck

If you’re overweight or obese, losing weight can make it easier for you to improve your posture, as can regular exercise, which strengthens key muscles necessary for correct posture.
