Don’t let “bad posture” hurt your health
Core tip: There is an old Chinese saying: “It’s not as good as dumplings, it’s not as comfortable as lying down.
“It’s the most relaxing moment for many people to return home from a busy day and find a posture of” backs and backs “completely” collapsed “on the sofa or bed.
But when you pose for a good self-feeling, you are likely to be quietly caught by some diseases!
Experts remind that the most comfortable posture does not mean the healthiest, especially the following “bad postures” that most people often commit, which requires special attention.
1. Lie on an office chair while working.
If you get up and walk around the office, you will find that everyone poses strangely.
The back nest is curled into a shrimp shape; the body is lying almost flat on the office chair, and the head is about to be parallel to the desktop; the person lying on the computer and holding his head up at work . Some people have summarized 15 “the most comfortable Internet postures”, of whichIt is most common to curl up in front of a computer and lie almost in a chair.

Sitting in one posture for a long time can easily induce cervical spondylosis.
Therefore, people who work for a long time at their desks must work for half an hour to get up and turn around; the office chair should be adjusted to the height of the thighs parallel to the ground; put a rolled towel or cushion on the back of the waist to reduce the burden on the lumbar spineFor too long, you can use your feet to step on the sewing machine, or put a tennis ball on your feet and roll it often to play a massage.
2. There is a hump in the chest when walking, dragging the legs.
Some people feel that having a hump on their backs and mopping their feet makes them feel “comfortable” when walking.
But in fact, this method is most likely to bring fatigue.

3. Stand shoulder high and shoulder low when leaning and lean on other objects.
When you are in the mall or on the street, you will see people in various standing poses.
Some of them have their legs crossed and looked around; some have their chests and bow their heads, playing with their mobile phones; some are constantly swinging and standing, and they lean against the walls, guardrails and billboards.
In fact, these stances are wrong demonstrations.
A crooked body will increase the tension on one side of the muscles, while leaving the other side in a relaxed state.
Standing for a long time will not only make the muscles stiff and sore, but also easily compress the spine and peripheral nerves, affecting the cardiopulmonary function.
The correct standing posture should be a slight retraction of the chin, a slight tightening of the abdomen, and a center of gravity slightly forward.
If you need to stand for a long time, you can rest one foot on a step about 10 cm.
