Stop crossing your legs when sitting
I always cross my legs when sitting as it seems look to more elegant. I am finding that I have lower back pain and my coworkers say it is due to me crossing legs, is that true?
CheckCheckCin: Crossing your legs definitely can look more elegant but it is not a healthy sitting position especially for those of you who have long hours sitting. If you have your legs crossed all the time, it may affect qi and blood floor. In more serious cases, that can lead to skewed pelvis or scoliosis. If you are experiencing shoulder, lower back, hip or leg pains, you should note your sitting position. In serious cases, be sure to consult professional medical opinion. There are other ways to look more elegant so do not cross your legs for that reason.
