Look, Your Posture Is Showina!
By Kitte Turmell
(Note: National Posture Week
Starts October 16.)
“Stand straight, Joe. Sit straight,
Josey.” How many teen-times have
you heard that from parents and
other adults who beg or nag you to:
improve your posture?
So you straighten up to prove
you are paying attention. Then
you slump back into awkward or
careless positions? It is easy to;
bend down for desk work, to slouch
into a chair for phone chatter. It
is hard to stand on posture-guard
in a tiresome ticket-line or as you
roar down the corridor. There are
fast-growing stages at which both
boys and girls feel self-conscious
about sudden changes in height,
weight and figure.
Also, feelings of social insecurity
and emotional upsets can change
your posture-picture. If you are
downhearted or shy or worried . . .
all that can show up in poor pos
ture, too!
However, experts agree that you
can develop good posture and its
Siamese twin, correct carriage, if
you practice continually until this
becomes as natural as any other
habit. It’s worthwhile. If you
stand, sit and walk correctly, you
can accomplish more with less ef
jfort. Doubtless, you will look bet
ter, feel better, do better. You
can encourage self-confidence and
make a better impression with a
posture which makes the most of
your good points and conceals your
figure faults.
Today’s way is to keep in straight
line without being too stiff or tense
for free swinging grace. One way
to keep flexible is through easy
movement. Even if you do not go
out for active sports, you should
keep “on the move” during teen
age when you could get that mid
dle-aged look from sitting too long
in the wrong positions, for movies
. . radio listening. Then there’s;
television which takes up as much
as four hours of daily watching
time for young video fans accord
ing to one survey.
To avoid “telesquat” from too
much sitting and other posture
faults try out these tips from Mrs.
Evelyn Loewendahl, a graduate
physical therapist and college pro- i
fessor of corrective physical edu
cation:
Keep flexible! Busy as you
might be with school, dates and
parties, you might not be using
many of your muscles. Unless you
... is highly suitable tor
your particular type of
function. Spacious, cool
and comfortable.

can still touch fingertips to floor i
witn a straight-knee bend-down;
and no pull any place (now, hon-!
estly) your lack of activity is
showing. To keep young in body;
grace and freedom, any exercise,;
including dancing, done correctly,
helps.
For the balance and co-ordina
tion without which you will find
it hard to maintain erect position
without strain, try exercising to
rhythm. Repeat easy movements,
in regular rhythm, for' about 20
minutes a day. This you can do
while walking or car polishing or
Saturday dusting or repeating any
other every-day movement. What
you do does not matter. It is the
rhythm that counts.
The ideal rhythm is the 4-4
timing for which you can play
a smooth-flowing recording or fol
low the quick click of the metro
nome used for piano practice.
Once you train yourself to that
rhythm you repeat the beat reg
ularly without accompaniment.
Many tests prove that this exer
cising to rhythm will improve
posture and carriage and encour
age the muscular control which
will help you to sidestep “the
awkward stage” at any age.
For a head-start train yourself
to use your head in correct posi
tion at all times, erect, with eyes
straight forward. If you do the
entire body will follow the lead
toward good stance and carriage.
If your head tilts backward or
forward or to one side you are
leading with your chin, literally,
for posture problems.
To line up your body lineup
measure a side view of you, look
ing straight ahead, head erect.
This can be done by standing be
side a full-length mirror (which
is divided down the center by a
straight vertical string or Jine),
with a friend standing by to size
you up. Also, you can ask a friend
to snap a candid camera shot of
your side view in natural position.
For this you wear something snug
fitting, such as gym or sun suit,
because clothes can conceal figure
faults and fool you, too.
If mirror or photo' show that
your posture line could be bisected
by a straight line touching five
points—at tip of ear, shoulder tip,
center of hip, knee and center of
ankle—you are in line with per
fect posture.
