Stop what you’re doing and look at how you’re sitting. Are you hunched over forward with your head only just inches away from the monitor? Or are you laid back with your feet stretched out in front of you and your arms struggling to reach the keyboard? Sitting with good posture can be extremely challenging especially if you’re in the same spot for eight hours of your day.
Sedentary jobs are defined as a minimum amount of walking or standing is necessary to carry out your day-to-day tasks, ultimately leading you confined to a seated position for a majority of your day. Such jobs vary from technology jobs, office jobs, transportation jobs, etc. With technology constantly changing, computers or machines now replace jobs that once required physical labor. Sedentary jobs lead to a lifestyle of many risks that once weren’t as prevalent including poor posture.
While we all know proper posture makes you look better, did you know it can help you feel better too? There are multiple benefits of having good posture including alleviating chronic neck and back pain, reducing stress and tension in your neck, giving you more energy and even more confidence. Correcting your posture isn’t just for when you’re sitting, the way you sit can affect your walking and standing posture as well.
Our bodies are made to stand and move, but instead, we tend to sit or lay down for a majority of our day. While sitting, we alter the way our spine naturally curves; in turn, straining your back muscles in hopes to hold your shape. Having poor posture while sitting has many negative health effects and has become an increasingly large problem in our society.
Changing your occupation to one that isn’t as sedentary isn’t the most realistic and may not be possible. Luckily for you, you can change your sitting position at your desk to help correct your posture! You can also wear a posture corrector while sitting at your desk to help train and remind your muscles to sit up straight.
The more you sit in the same position, the more likely you are to develop different health problems. Changing the way you are seated at your job can help alleviate posture problems, but there can be other health problems from a sedentary job aside from poor posture.
