Are you tired of being short? Do you want to be taller and you are the shortest person in your class? Or do you just want to add a few inches to your height? This article will give you tips and tricks on how to do that.
1. Start by stretching right after waking up. This will warm up your muscles for the day. Here are some stretches techniques:
Stand with feet a little bit more than shoulder width apart. Roll your neck in a circle one way and then vice versa. Roll your shoulders back and then forward. Repeat with your arms.
Sit on the floor and straighten your legs out in front of you while pointing your toes. Reach as far forward as you can. Flex your toes and repeat. You should stay leaning over for 10 seconds in point, then flex and repeat. Do that until you can hardly feel your legs.
Now straddle your legs and point your toes. Reach for one leg and hold for 10 seconds. Repeat about ten times to each leg. Then flex your toes and reach for one leg and hold for 10 seconds. Repeat about 10 times.
Try doing a split. Just go as far as you can. Its okay if you can’t go all the way down to the floor. Make sure you do both legs and continue to do it every day.
Stand up on your toes and put your hands up towards sky. Now try to stretch your whole body like you are trying to touch the ceiling.
Stand up and grab your foot on the bottom arch. Stretch your foot as far up as you can while holding it with your hand.
2. You should repeat each stretch before you go to bed and right after you wake up. Also you should get about 8-10 hours of sleep each night.
3. Eat a healthy diet with plenty of fruits and veggies. Stay away from caffeine (coffee, Coke, Sunkist etc.) Although caffeine doesn’t stunt your growth, it prevents sleep. Try to also stay away from chocolate and even decaf coffee as they still contain caffeine.
4. Sit up straight and exercise often. Go out for team sports.
5. Drink more water.
