Have you ever heard of the expression “dressed to kill”? Well, your fashion choices could be killing you gradually. That favorite stylish outfit you love so much may make you look good but can cause serious health problems. Bear in mind that designers are not in the business of making clothing safe. They are in the business of making them attractive to consumers.
Making these wardrobe changes can eliminate health issues caused by clothing choices or prevent them from occurring.
Wear supportive shoes
Great shoes give you support and complete your outfit. However, it is important to learn how to choose the right shoes that complement your outfit without damaging your body. One common issue is the length of your heels.
High heels disrupt the natural form of the body, pulling it out of alignment which can lead to low back, shoulder, and neck pain. To prevent these issues:
- Wear lower-heeled shoes
- If you must wear high-heeled shoes, alternate with lower-heeled shoes throughout the week.
- If you do a lot of walking and standing, take a pair of flats with you in case you start to feel weary.
- Do stretching exercises before and after long periods of wearing heels.
