People with low self-esteem carry themselves in these three ways
We all know that it’s important to always walk and stand straight up, but this isn’t what everyone always does. The following three postures suggest a low self-esteem. Thankfully, you can improve your posture and therefore possibly improve your self-image.
Psychologist Dr. Seema Hingorany knows how much your posture says about your personality. She states that it speaks volumes about your personality and self-confidence. “Both elements are necessary for the overall holistic development of the person,” she tells Voque India.
Do you often find yourself in the following postures? Here’s what it says about your personality.
People who never straighten their back fully, but often keep it slightly hunched, often have low self-esteem. “It indicates a person with low self-confidence, someone who is used to conflict and grief,” says Hingorany.
The psychologist recommends that you teach yourself to always keep your back straight. You can also achieve this with exercises such as yoga or jogging. “Always be aware of your bad posture so you can correct it if it happens.”
A very elegant attitude
Some people sway while walking which doesn’t provide stability to your body. “This posture shows a very weak personality that is helpless,” says Hingorany. It is about a vulnerable person who is very indecisive and constantly overthinks things.
According to the psychologist, so-called grounding techniques can help to improve posture. “These techniques help you keep your feet firmly on the ground while you concentrate on your breathing.”
Head farther forward than the rest of your body
People who suffer from restlessness and hyperactivity often take on this posture wherein their head is farther forward than the rest of their body. These people are naturally curious, but also untrustful. The body’s structure is no longer in line and this can result in pains and aches. “This person is constantly working on processing information,” says Hingorany.
People who often hold this posture should reach out to professionals who can help them to improve posture.
Hingorany also advises people to exercise and jog regularly to create peace in their minds.
