Everyone, including me has a bad habit of not sitting correctly. Often, even do sit in the wrong way like sitting with back bent. This is not a correct posture and totally wrong which harms the backbone and the muscles of the backbone. This is meant to be wrong also because there is damage in the joints of prolonged sitting

If you’re young, I advise you to sit correctly because this is the age when you’ll develop to have a good health. Later, the side effects will show when you get older. So try maintaining the health from now on. Just follow these steps to have a proper sitting;

  • Keep your back straight and relaxed
  • Keep your knees bent and foot on the floor facing forward
  • Just stay rested back and don’t even pull yourself back or move forward to reach out to see on your computer or laptop

You shouldn’t look down much instead youshould be comfortable so that you can look straight forward
