What is the correct posture while sitting?



The correct sitting posture may be recognised by the following:

1. The hips region should be properly placed at the sitting place.

2. The head, shoulders and hips should be in a straight line.

3. Vertebral column should be straight.

4. Head should be upright so that the muscles behind may get some rest.

5. Both arms should be balanced.

6. Thighs should be straight.

7. Legs should be vertically resting on the feet.

It is very harmful to sit with a bent vertebral column. This causes extra strain on the connected limbs, which tire out in a short period. Consequently, obstructions are caused in their functioning.
