There is a saying, “Sit not just in-style but in healthy style”. If the sitting posture is not proper, the neck & backpain problems occur. The persons working in offices in sitting position, cannot sit in the same posture for a long time. While sitting, they should not give more pressure for backbone and legs. While sitting, the legs should touch the floor. It the height is more, they can keep a small stool under the feet. The knees should be in line with the hip or below it. It protects the knee joints.
Poor posture is something that every office-based employee should consider throughout their day. Most people sitting at a computer get drawn into the screen, which means they crane their necks forward. This imbalance puts strain on the neck and spine.
While sitting, the backside of the leg should not touch the seat. There should be some gap. The bottom of the backbone should rest in the seat. It the position is not OK, we can keep a small pillow there. The shoulders should not bend in the front. The hands should be kept in a comfortable position while working. After half an hour of sitting, we have to walk for 5 minutes.
Sitting down all day long is one of the worst things for our health. It increases the likelihood of heart disease and weight gain. Small changes, practiced consistently over a long period of time, are the best way to increase health and well-being. We have to avoid using lift and elevator, if we have to sit and work for a long time. We have to follow the habit of moving more and sitting less.
There is a need to establish healthy patterns of behavior during the early years in order to protect against possible health detriments in the future. For children parents could lead by example by also reducing their TV time and other sitting-based tasks.
So, please sit in a healthy style and avoid the dangers.
