A few exercises that can help you increase height
The body language and shape creates an impression on the viewer before one utters a single word. Hence it is quite to have a sound body with considerable height. Those who are lacking such height can try to increase the same with some of the exercises.
- Bar Hanging:
Hanging is the best way to overcome the problem of shorter height. As you might know, gravity majorly affects your height as it compresses your spines and joints, which squeezes and thins the cartilage, which results in shorter height and makes you look short. With the help of this exercise, you will be able to increase one to two inches of height but not at a faster pace; it can take you months to achieve this goal.
- Forward spine stretch:
To perform forward spine stretch, you need to sit up straight on a yoga mat with your feet in front of you. You must spread your legs right about your shoulder width apart, and your feet should be kept straight. Take a deep breath, now slowly inhale and spread your arms out in front of you. While inhaling slowly, bend forward and try to touch the tips of your toes.
Usually, people cannot afford to touch their toes as their body is not so flexible. Though, if you’re able to touch the tip of your toes, then you can try some more stretching techniques so that your spine is flexible to the maximum extent.
