"W" Sitting Looks Like The Mark Of Flexibility, But It Could Be Harmful
While all parents have their own styles when it comes to raising children, most have one thing in common: they want the best for their kids. Sometimes that means limiting screen time and getting outside or finding the best tricks for making life easy for the whole family. Perhaps most importantly, it means keeping the little ones healthy, starting by setting kids up for a lifetime of good posture.
Turns out, slouching isn't just hard on your back. Studies have shown that hunching over can increase feelings of depression and decrease energy levels. It can also affect the way others view you; slouchers are less likely to get raises and promotions at work. And if that's not enough to stress you out, bad posture itself can up stress levels.
