Sit Only When Necessary – Working in an office, driving in a car, watching television or playing computer games: all of these involve sitting. We sit for the majority of the day in an upright position, but this position isn’t very healthy for the spine. When sitting, we are putting extra tension on the lower discs in the spine, and when you sit for an extended period of time and begin to slouch, this tension only increases. Try to stand as much as you can and sit only when you have to.
Wear Comfortable Shoes – The posture of your foot actually has a huge role to play in the condition of your spine. As the foot is the base of the body, this acts as the initial area of support for the spine, so keeping the base comfortable will keep your spine properly supported.
