In today’s realities, a smartphone is indispensable. It includes work, education, communication, and entertainment. But such almost round-the-clock “interaction” with the phone has a bad effect on our posture.

The thing is that we usually look at the screen with our heads slightly lowered. This, in turn, puts more stress on the neck and vertebrae. A sedentary lifestyle, sedentary work and stoop exacerbate the situation.

To check if you have posture problems, we suggest doing one very simple exercise.

Posture test

Tilt your head forward as much as possible.

  • If you lightly touch your chin to your chest, with the cervical region, most likely, you are all right.
  • If you can touch your chin to your chest just by opening your mouth, or if you can’t at all, you need to work on your posture.

Posture test

Girls, you already know that the stomach bulges when there is a lot of fat in it. But that’s not the only reason! The stomach can fall out even in thin girls. Noticed? This is due to stoop and weak back muscles. Our body is designed in such a way that everything in it is interconnected. Therefore, it is impossible to have a flat stomach with a stooped back.

Yes, and you must admit, a beautiful woman is not just the absence of belly fat. This is a swan neck, and good posture, and a free gait. We look at everything in the complex!

I propose now to conduct a simple test for the condition of the cervical spine. Now tilt your head as far forward as possible. If you lightly touch the chin of the chest, the cervical region is most likely all right. If you can touch your chin to your chest just by opening your mouth, or if you can’t at all, you need to work on your posture.

Now we have such a life that we constantly have to sit. We sit at work, we sit in the car, we sit at home on the couch. And yet we constantly slouch. And we look at the screen of the phone, usually strongly moving the neck forward. This greatly increases the load on the neck and the health of the spine does not add.
