Our Posture and Our Life

Nowadays, many people have postureproblems. Even though these people tend to blame themselves and theircurrent posture for this state of affairs, this problem has rootsdeep inside the early ages of our existence altogether. Namely, already in the kindergarten we are supposed to sit most of the time.The situation hardly changes once we are in school. Then, there iscollege and then, of course there is work, which, again demands us tosit in a chair or perform different things from a limited range ofbody positions. Naturally, this makes our body most accustomed to thesitting position, since, throughout the years, we have made it anecessity. Thus, feeling best while sitting, if we are not sittingcorrectly, our body will have a bad posture. What is more, the samewill happen while we are standing up. If we lean while we are sittingon the chair, we will do the same while standing up. This gives riseto numerous posture issues.

Being kept is a single, wrong or right,posture, our muscles have developed so that they could cope with ourmost common bodily positions. Thus, if you are bending your backoften and leaning forward, some of the muscleswhich were supposed to keep your back straight have been neglectedand grew weak with time. The same goes for your head, which has strongerneck muscles to keep it stretched up, but with time of keeping it wrong it adds up to complete yourinadequate posture. So, molding your body wrongly throughout theyears has resulted in the rise of these problems.
