9. Practice Good Posture
A good posture plays a key role in the development of your height. A good posture is one where the head and neck are aligned without any sign of bending or slouching.
This type of posture straightens out your spine, relaxes your muscles and helps improve your height. On the other hand, a bad posture makes your spinal cord bend, which in turn suppresses your normal height.
So, make sure to sit straight on a chair and keep your shoulders straight and chin high. When you stand or walk, keep your body straight and tight.
10. Drink Plenty of Water
Try to drink ample amounts of water throughout the day. Water flushes out harmful toxins from your body and improves digestion. Plus, it will improve your metabolism rate, which will have a direct impact on your height.
For overall health, drink at least eight glasses of water every day. Along with drinking water, eat water-based fruits and vegetables like cucumbers and watermelon.
- Try to maintain ideal body weight as obesity can have an adverse effect on your height.
- Stop smoking as it acts like a growth inhibitor.
- Avoid drinking as it suppresses your growth level.
- Avoid eating fast foods.
