Smartphones, laptops and iPads might be a great invention for the world of technology, it has come at a price. How are you reading this post? Are you reading it on your smartphone? Perhaps you are sat on a bus or train, hunched up, head down.
Lift your head for one second, how many people around you on your commute are in the same position? Head down, hunched over, facing their lap? I am sure that there are going to be plenty of people who are exactly the same as you. So, what has this got do with your sex appeal?
It might not feel like it, but sitting in this way can actually have a detrimental effect on your body, as well as your mind (let’s not talk about that now of course). When you spend an extended period of time sitting like this, or perhaps sit like this on a regular basis; you are going to be causing your posture to change.
Your pectoral muscles will move from where they should be, around the sternum, to the anterior parts of your shoulder, which means that they get tighter and tighter. This means, when the time comes to stand up straight, well that is going to be even harder to do. When we are out for the night, when we are in our heels, when we dance or perhaps when we are trying to catch the eye of the person that you are trying to attract.
You might feel that you are standing tall and proud, but the truth is that you shoulders are forward, you are hunched over and you look like you are unconfident, that you don't believe in yourself. Not exactly the type of thing that you are going to want to portray.
Thankfully there is something that you can do to rectify this and help you stand strong and proud. Take celebrities for example, when they stand on the red carpet, they never have the appearance of being hunched over. Of course, they are still guilty of being sat on their phones as much as mere mortal, so what do they do about it that?
They train, they work on their posture, they try to rectify the wrongs that they have done the rest of the time. They work on their posterior back muscles, which will help them to stand up straight and also be able to hold that position too.
This takes time, it means that you need to speak to an expert in helping you with your posture, it means that you need to do your homework and work out the methods and techniques that are going to be right for you. Just like trying to lose weight by going to the gym, you are going to need to work at making these changes, you are going to need to put the effort it.
Not only do you need to work at your improving the strength of those muscles, but you should also look at the use of your devices too. There is nothing wrong with glancing at them from time to time, but one thing that you should always try to do is make sure that you are not sat there slumped over your phone, looking just like some kind of tech zombie.
Raise your head, look around you and take in the world around you. Notice how many other people are sat like you used to and make sure that you are the one standing tall and proud, when the rest are looking as unsexy as they can be!
