Posture: The Perfect Walking Technique

A good posture will contribute a great deal to your day-to-day living. Most of the time, while we watch our posture when we're standing still or sitting at our desk, we often neglect it when we are walking — whether we are just strolling along or rushing to get to the office on time.

The correct walking technique will help you to maintain a good posture, allow you to breathe more easily and also contribute to minimized lower back pain.

While walking, try to consciously remind yourself to stand up straight and follow these golden rules:

  • Do not overarch your back
  • Try not to lean too far forward or backward
  • Keep you chin up and parallel to the floor
  • Tummy tucked
  • Chest open
  • Shoulders slightly back and
  • Butt tucked behind you.

It is also important to keep your head in a neutral, relaxed position with your eyes looking straight ahead. This will help you remain aligned and focused.

Remember that good posture affects how you look and feel. People with good posture instantly have more poise and confidence and naturally feel better about themselves. Be proud and stand tall!

A good posture not only means good news for your health,
but can help you feel more confident too.
