Do you find yourself slouching and your upper back resembling a camel’s hump? Do you frequently face problems such as neck pain, headaches and lower back pain?

Even while sitting in the name of being relaxed people unconsciously treat their bodies unfairly by not paying attention to the way there are sitting. Although one might feel comfortable but it is really momentary. In a long run this treatment to the body not only affects our health badly but also casts a bad impression among people. We tend to be dull, low confident and clumsy. But that does not mean it cannot be improved. There are a few things which if followed will definitely bring a difference.
Keeping A Check On Oneself
Practice makes a man perfect. One has to initially keep a check on how he is sitting frequently and slowly it will develop into a habit. The correct angle while sitting on a chair is 135 degree. One should see that the chair supports the back. Thighs should be parallel to the ground. Feet should be kept flat on the ground or on footrest. Even while sitting with crisscrossed legs one should try to keep the spine straight. At first it hurts because we aren’t habituated to sit in that way but we got to push our limits.
Build An Ideal Surrounding
The environment you are sitting plays a vital role in the way you maintain your posture. Especially in today’s time people spend hours at desk. The chair should be comfortable and the table raised to proper height so that one does not slouch.
Exercises are indeed helpful in maintaining a proper shape and posture.
