A girl in my office bus
Some days back, a girl in my office bus caught my attention. The girl was sitting so straight that was really nice to watch. You may be wondering what is unusual in that.
Just try to sit or stand in the right posture for at least ten minutes. If you are able to maintain your posture for the ten minutes, then you can skip further reading.
And after noticing her, I just looked at other people sitting in the bus. None was sitting so straight as she was. Majority of people were either sleeping or in a relaxed position, totally sunk into their chairs.
Am I sitting in I or C posture?
I analysed myself – anyway I was not sleeping then 🙂 . But was slightly in a ‘C’ shaped posture. I tried to sit in correct posture and determined to be like that. But lost in thoughts and went back to the ‘C’ shaped posture. Well, it’s not a simple task to maintain a good posture. And that girl was maintaining her position till we reached office.
Later on I met her in meeting rooms, in some coffee shops, in the lobby etc. Everywhere she was maintaining her good posture, with her heads up reflecting her confidentiality. I don’t know much about her personality and all. But I ‘m quite sure that ‘I’ position instead of ‘C’ position reveals her INDIVIDUALITY.
A good posture
Good posture is nothing more than keeping our body in proper alignment. In fact posture is far more than looking confident and graceful. Sitting or standing or walking in the right position ensures that our body functions adequately.
Do you have an I shaped or C shaped posture?
Now it’s your turn.. Just think whether you want to have an ‘I’ posture or ‘C’ posture?
Please Note: I simply used the alphabets ‘I’ and ‘C’ just to indicate right and curved positions respectively. There is nothing beyond that. In fact spine is said to have an ‘S’ shape and definitely not ‘I’ shape. Hence before practicing, need adequate knowledge on the proper posture as a good posture does not mean keeping our spine fully straight. We may get exhausted when we simply try to maintain our body straight and it can damage our spine.Understand that ‘S’ shape and practice accordingly!!
