    Do Not Cross Your Legs

    Those who often cross their legs when sitting for a long period of time, 3 unhealthy things will happen:

    1 Their backbone tends to become 'C' shape
    2 They will have neck aches and backaches on one side
    3 For ladies, the shoulder will tend to slant one side causing the bra strap to slip down the slanted shoulder.

    look out the images below

    Re: Do Not Cross Your Legs

    “When the muscles of the legs and knees are not nourished and don’t have good circulation, the extremities stagnate, which can lead to varicose veins or broken capillaries and other problems. Look at the ankles of people age 40 and over who have the habit of crossing their legs. Note the broken veins and capillaries. When the muscles and feet do not get their full supply of blood, the feet become weak and poor circulation sets in. Cold feet usually torment the leg-crosser.


    A well-known heart specialist was asked, “When do most people have a heart attack?” He answered, “At a time they are sitting quietly with one leg crossed over the other.”


    When you sit, plant both feet squarely on the floor or a box if needed. Crossing your legs puts an unnecessary burden on your heart. People who are habitual leg-crossers have more acid crystals stored in the feet than those who never cross their legs. Crossing the legs is one of the worst postural habits of man. It throws the hips, spine and head off balance and it’s the most common cause of chronic backaches, headaches and varicose veins.


    Bad posture can develop aches and pains all over the body. Be kind to your body and please don’t cross your legs. You can break this habit.”
