Does Being Taller Put You at an Advantage in Life?

Would being taller make a difference in your life?

The answer is absolutely. You can use the following techniques and exercises to reach your full height potential. What you do when you’re young will likely affect how tall you will grow to be. While none of these steps can ensure you grow tall, having a healthy, low stress lifestyle will increase the odds you reach your maximum potential height

Height plays a major role in different areas of your life, including:

– Career

– Dating and Relationships

– Self-esteem and Self-worth

– Perception and Psychology

– Even your General Health and Well Being.

Avoid growth-stunting factors. There might not be a lot you can do to increase your height, but you can take several steps to make sure your natural height isn’t shortened by environmental influences. Drugs and alcohol are both thought to contribute to stunted growth if they’re ingested while you’re young, and malnutrition can keep you from reaching your full height, as well.

Get plenty of sleep. Research suggests that growing teenagers and pre-teens need between 8.5 and 11 hours of sleep every night. Most of your growing takes place while sleeping. This is because your body grows and regenerates tissue while you’re at rest. Make your sleeping environment as calm as possible, and try to eliminate loud noises and unnecessary light. If you have trouble falling asleep, try taking a warm bath or drinking a hot cup of chamomile tea before bed. Not getting enough hours of sleep will stunt your growth.

The human growth hormone (HGH) is produced naturally in our bodies, especially during deep or slow wave sleep. Getting good, sound sleep will encourage the production of HGH, which is created in the pituitary gland.

As a hormone, HGH is sometimes injected into the bloodstream under the supervision of a licensed doctor. HGH creams, powders, pills or non-prescription injections are medically suspect and can have serious side effects. Talk with your doctor before starting any course of HGH treatment.
