1. Your Posture
For certain people, just this one thing can have instant effects. Remember that your posture is of utmost importance to your height. A good posture keeps your spinal column aligned, thus making your stretches and exercises more effective. Moreover, the right posture makes you look taller instantly. As you walk or sit, remember to not slouch. Put your chest out and let your stomach come in this way. If you keep your chin upright and high, it is going to be much easier to maintain this posture. This may take some time and feel quite exhaustive, especially in the beginning. Give yourself time to adapt to this new posture and do your best. Maybe you have family, colleagues or friends who can help you with this by correcting you anytime you forget to keep a good posture.
Give your body a lot of rest. The first phase of your sleep is responsible for releasing growth hormones into your system. Additionally, while you are asleep, your spinal column has time to relax and decompress. That’s the reason why you need to sleep flat on your back. Make sure that you sleep at least eight hours every night and you will greatly enhance any stretches and exercises that you do on some of your other days.
It’s funny how this comes up in anything that is related to health: drinking water. Drinking plenty of water is also very important if you are on your way to increasing your height. Obviously, it keeps your body from dehydration. What else you need to realize, though, is that growing taller naturally is a big change for your body. Thus, you want to make sure that you provide it with all the necessary nutrients so that it can fully regenerate.
