GOOD AND PROPER POSTURE


Family members, as well as school educators, should pay attention to the proper posture of children (standing, sitting, walking, lying down) from an early age. A hunched back and a drooping head are not only signs of aging, but we find them already in young people, which has a particularly negative effect on their movement.

When standing, the head should be kept upright, the shoulders should not be hung, as this narrows the chest, which prevents proper breathing. The legs should be kept closer to each other, not that there is a large gap between them, the knees should not be bent.
If you work standing, try to adjust your work surface to a height that would not tire your arms and shoulders. Avoid staying in the same position for a long time when standing or sitting, and change it as often as possible, because frequent changes in position and posture lead to proper metabolism in the joints. When standing for a long time, try to distribute the load correctly on both legs or alternately, at equal intervals, stand on your feet, while your arms try to move and occasionally stretch. Stand alternately on one leg while extending the other a few inches forward so that the body is in balance. Place something under one leg while standing on the other, as this will relieve it. As you stand, try to move as much as possible. If prolonged standing cannot be avoided either at work or in the household, an important rule should be followed: never stand in a semi-bending position.

When sitting, the back should be kept upright as well as the shoulders, thighs and lower legs should form a right angle when sitting. The optimal way to sit is when the body is relaxed and the body weight is properly distributed without unnecessarily straining the spine. While eating, it is important to pay attention to proper posture because the way you sit also affects digestion. Care should also be taken that the table and chair have a certain height so as not to squeeze the stomach.
When working in a sitting position, it is important that the height of the work surface is adjusted so that the arm bent at the elbow forms a right angle. Care should be taken that the surface is not too low because in this case it is necessary to bend the head more, and such a position permanently damages the cervical spine. The height can be easily adjusted on office chairs, and the armchair can be adjusted individually, which relieves the spine when sitting.


When walking, care should be taken to stand on the heel and rise on the toes, because in this way the knees are more relaxed when walking. This gives the gait a certain elasticity that indicates freshness and youthfulness. The arms should be allowed to fall freely down the body, the head should be kept upright, and the shoulders should be slightly bent backwards so that the chest is free and breathing is facilitated.
If you bend down, do not bend your back, but lower yourself in a squatting way. If you are lifting a load, try to transfer the load from your hands to your upper leg, which means that you are lifting the load from a squatting position. If it is inevitable that you are carrying a heavy load then you are carrying it alternately on your shoulders and never on your arms. If you carry the load on your chest, try to stick it to your chest as much as possible so that the load does not weigh you forward. Never carry a load with a bent back.
Try not to wear high-heeled shoes at work or every day. Drivers should pay attention to their body position while driving - their arms should be outstretched and slightly bent at the elbows.

MOVEMENT AND SPORT
A healthy and harmonious diet is not enough in itself, but also bodily functions should be trained. If the body "saves" it weakens its functions as well as the body's defenses. Exercise and sports improve the work of the digestive organs, affect the proper metabolism in the body and reduce body weight.

Research has shown that a trained heart has to work far slower to accomplish certain actions compared to an untrained heart. It follows that if the heart is trained, blood pressure does not rise due to physical exertion. Exercise and sports condition the body in a way that prevents the prevention of disease and slows down the aging process, as it keeps the body young.
Exercise and sports prevent weight gain and strive to maintain body weight and even reduce it. In addition, it affects the metabolism and proper metabolism in the body. In addition, it stimulates blood circulation through an accelerated heart rate and ensures the expulsion of toxic substances from the body. It also improves proper breathing and through better blood circulation improves the functioning of other organs. Movement and sports strengthen the entire musculature, affect the increased supply of oxygen to the body, strengthen the body's defense system and prevent infectious diseases. In addition, it prevents varicose veins, makes the skin fresh and taut, makes joints and tendons elastic, strengthens muscles and bones.


The type of sport he wants to do should be chosen depending on the interest and interest in it. Playing sports should arouse interest and joy in a person, and this cannot be achieved if sports mean riding a home bicycle for which one very quickly becomes uninterested.
In non-sports people, circulation can nevertheless be improved by daily walking and running. When walking, do not wander idle or drag yourself slowly, but take strong steps in measured steps, while alternately stretching your arms forward, which will strengthen your abdominal muscles. As you walk, breathe lightly and deeply. Count how many steps you take while inhaling lightly and how many while exhaling. Try to take as many steps as possible, so you will cover a greater distance, and you will not get tired. If you walk every day, try to increase the distance every next day, in this way you will increase your fitness, and you will not exhaust your body.

In the hobby we usually pursue, we also find enough movement. An example is working in the garden, which does not lag behind sports in terms of health effects. The advantage of gardening is precisely that we are constantly in the fresh air, and thus stimulates breathing, encourages better blood circulation, circulation, and thus the work of all other organs.
