How Posture Affects Your Health

We may think that sitting upright for hours on end can be exhausting, and you’d be right. Especially for those of us who work at a desk. But bad posture is infinitely worse for your health as it can increase your risk of back pain, lower blood circulation and cause tightness in your chest.

But bad posture is infinitely worse for your health as it can increase your risk of back pain, lower blood circulation and cause tightness in your chest. Correct posture, on the other hand, has a whole range of health benefits such as:

  • Relieving shoulder, back and neck pain
  • Improving digestion
  • Providing mental clarity
  • Balancing hormones
  • Enhancing breathing
  • Reducing stress

You can target these muscles and tone them with a really simple exercise called the ‘locust pose’, aka shalabhasana in yoga. It helps strengthen the back, torso and leg muscles which will correct your body posture.
