Weekly Health Tips

BENEFITS OF GOOD POSTURE

Posted: 08.23.2016

Proper body alignment can ease stress on our spine and joints; it can help reduce muscle strain, backache, neck pain and headaches. Posture can affect energy levels and the ability to generate positive or negative thoughts. Participants in a recent study who were upright felt happier, more self-confident and more energetic than those who slouched. Energy and productivity levels may be affected by posture because slouching reduces oxygen intake. High-power postures characterized by tall, wide stances actually increased levels of testosterone and lower the stress hormone cortisol. Low-power postures, contractive and closed stances had the opposite effect.
