Women Interests

What a better time to consider your posture than a few weeks before your prom. It only takes a few short weeks, of conscious adjustment, to permanently affect your posture in a positive way. Most ladies have completely forgotten what it means to have good posture. Even those of us who slouch and stand crooked even believe that we are just fine. Slender women tend to think that they are perfectly poised just because of their size. It is a myth to think that heavier women are naturally slouched; it is actually a backward opinion because heavier women are more self conscious which can equal to a straighter back, tucked tummy, and back-stacked shoulders.

Even a simple pair of heels can drastically enhance your posture in a positive manner, just by forcing the body to stand far more erect. A few tricks and tips and you can be standing tall, beautiful, and poise just in time to slip into your prom dress. Most of us sit almost all day long and sitting usually equals slouching. Be conscious of your sitting position will help your over-all standing posture. Always keep your legs uncrossed and flat on the floor; choose a chair that stacks your hips slightly higher than your knees to distribute the weight evenly; shoulders relaxed with abs light and engaged; even when you are forced to stare at a keyboard do your best to level your head as often as possible and keep it flush with your neck and spine. You should be able to place a hand between the back of the chair and the small of your back. If your normal posture has been out of whack, when you properly align yourself while sitting, you will begin to consciously notice your thighs since the legs are uncrossed now. For a healthy standing posture begin with your feet planted on the floor a few inches apart. Note your body weight and where it lies; if your weight is on your heels then you are out of alignment. Your standing weight should always rest evenly on your feet so that you feel it in your chest and abs. Keep your knees bent, slightly to hold your weight. Never lock your knees. Pull your belly button toward your spine to find your stability and always keep your head, and neck, in-line with your shoulders. If you can carry these perfect poses for one to two consecutive weeks, you are on your way to finding your perfect, full-time posture, and keeping your spine, legs, and hips healthy throughout the years.
