Avoid Bad Posture When Youre at a Party
Your tendency: To step out in a pair of high heels, even though heels higher than two inches change the alignment of your ankles, knees, and hips. The pelvis juts forward, the lower back arches, and the calf muscles and the Achilles tendons get unnaturally shortened. When you’re tired, you may shift your weight onto one leg, which corkscrews the head, the neck, and the spine.
The better way: To party in a pretty pair of ballet flats or some other comfortable low-heeled shoes. But if you love the look of heels, opt for sturdy ones that are between one and two inches high. Fight fatigue by balancing your weight evenly on both feet, keeping your knees unlocked and your belly button pulled in toward your spine.
