8 everyday habits that could be damaging your posture
Standing with hip thrust to one side
This impacts the hip muscles, apart from the muscles mentioned above. It also creates a muscular imbalance between the two sides of the body.
Correct it: Shift body weight from one leg to another periodically, and don’t use one side excessively. It’s easier on the body to stand with a wider gap between the feet. This increases the base of support. Keep the hips squared forward, with body weight evenly distributed on both feet. If leaning against any support (wall, chair) ensure the back is tall and the hips balanced.
