an article to make you sit up straight

It’s no secret that maintaining good posture is an important part of one’s overall health. Ever wonder why older adults cannot stand up straight? This is the result of years of bad habits. Unfortunately, the importance of healthy posture is not well publicized.
How can we explain posture? The positioning of our bodies in various positions is what we explain as posture.
Muscle tension and gravity are the two key components of healthy posture; balancing these components creates good posture. Posture, that is, the utilization of our muscles, we are able to move through space and be active.
We are able to move through space without upholding ourselves through posture. It is up to us whether that posture is healthy or not. Healthy posture is maintained through the usage of several muscle groups, in particular the hamstrings and the lower back muscles. The skeleton, held together by the ligaments of the body, depend upon the muscles to carry out the structural integrity of movement. The body’s position is upheld by postural muscles.
Good posture is helpful: By demonstrating healthy posture, we are able to stand, walk, lie down, and sit in ways that reduce the amount of stress upon the body during weight-bearing movements.
Good posture keeps the bones and joints of our bodies in correct alignment so that we use our muscles in the right way. This lowers the possibility that we’ll wear down the surfaces of our joints, causing pain, and even possibly degenerative arthritis. It also minimizes the chance of injury, as it takes away unnecessary strain on the ligaments of the spinal joints. Correct posture enables efficient use of the muscles, preventing fatigue and keeping the body from using too much energy, and prevents muscle and back pain, overuse issues and the straining of muscles.
To have good posture you must first possess flexible, strong muscles. In addition, your spinal and other joints need to have the capacity to move through the range of normal motion. You’ll also require strong, stable postural muscles flanking the spine. In addition, you must have the mental awareness to monitor and correct postural issues as they arise.
The disadvantages of bad posture: The postural muscles of the body can become stressed as a result of poor posture. Our bodies grow accustomed to the particular positions we maintain over long periods of time. The evidence of this condition is apparent in people who, while working, bend forward at the waist for extended amounts of time. These people have placed their postural muscles at a high risk for injury and pain.
Poor posture typically has its roots in pregnancy, stress, obesity, stiff muscles, wearing high-heeled shoes, and weak postural muscles. Low flexibility, or habitually poor posture standing, sitting or at work can contribute to generally poor posture, as well.
