Health Update: Benefits of sitting on the ground!


Sitting on the floor is more beneficial for health than sitting on a chair, although in today's time, sitting on the ground all the time is not possible nor is it necessary. Sitting on the floor while eating, reading, and exercising is enough. 


Ayurveda doctor Varalakshmi Yanamandra has also shared the benefits of sitting on the floor on her Instagram account and said that I am not completely forbidding you to sit on a chair. But make it a habit to sit on the floor for at least a few minutes every day. 

Benefits of sitting on the ground-

healthy for spine

A healthy spine is very important for overall health. To ensure this, it is very important to avoid sitting with bad posture, slouching, or leaning forward. In such a situation, sitting on the ground proves to be very beneficial for the strength and structure of the spine. 

engages the core

Sitting on the floor brings many benefits to our health. But most importantly, it engages your core and brings stability to the spine.

strengthens hip muscles


The hip flexors are the muscles that connect our hips to the thigh, lower back, and pelvis. In such a situation, weak hip flexors can also affect walking, stability, and balance. Sitting on the floor helps in strengthening these hip muscles.

improves posture

Sitting on the floor improves posture. This happens because the lower body muscles take longer to engage. Sitting on the floor does not make the body appear bent. Because when you're sitting with your legs crossed your lower back is naturally pulled slightly into a supported position.

Keep these things in mind

  • You can sit cross-legged or long-legged or in simple Sukhasana. It is good if you can sit straight.
  • If you feel stressed while sitting, use a pillow or towel under your hips.
  • If you're spending a lot of time on the floor, try changing positions. Spread your legs, and use some props for the legs.
