Just like most of the population, it is likely that you cross your legs out of habit.
In the good old days, it wasn’t ladylike to cross one’s legs.
I’m not sure if this is still the case today when it comes to ‘school of etiquette’ – if you know, please leave me a comment below.
Crossing the legs out of habit (doing it pretty much every time we sit down) will misalign the pelvis, the spine and interferes with blood circulation and in the long term will cause you pain.
But the point I want to make here is not if you do it but how you do it.
If we learn to do it correctly then it won’t be so bad and we can still look elegant.
In this video I show you how to cross your legs in a way that is safe.
It is important to be aware, however, that people with back issues including sciatic nerve pain shouldn’t cross their legs because this can only aggravate the conditions.
Pregnant women too shouldn’t cross their legs because there’s a lot going on the pelvis area and one ought to keep it in a neutral position as much as possible to prevent or reduce pelvic pain.
I hope this information is of great value to you and if it is please share it so that together we spread the seed of good postural habits to live a life without pain and with more elegance.
Below, let me know how do you feel about crossing your legs.
