Increase Height | Grow Taller | How To Increase Height

So how do we grow taller? What’s the secret? I think I’ve probably had about a thousand messages and comments in total to do a video on this topic so without further ado let’s begin now it’s thought that genetics account for 80% of our final height but there are something called environmental factors which account for about 20% of our final height and that’s what we’re going to discuss today so puberty is when we typically begin our growth spurt but we all grow at different pace now once we go past puberty we generally stop growing so if you are watching this video and you are in your adolescence that’s fantastic because this video should help you maximize your potential growth however if you’re not in your adolescence then please continue watching because there are tips in this video that can help make improvements at any age ok so tip one avoid stunting your natural growth and the big players in this are caffeine and smoking so the way that caffeine does this is by affecting your sleep because sleep is vital for you to grow to your maximum potential and I’m going to discuss sleep a bit further on now research has shown that smoking and even second hand smoke actually reduce height in children so if you do smoke please quit or if you do have any family or friends that smoke please help them quit and also ask them not to smoke around you ask them to smoke outside so you’re not getting that secondhand smoke I’ll leave more information on quitting and about secondhand smoke in the description below for you to which moves us on to tip number two now to help you grow the tallest possible you need to be eating a healthy balanced diet so you need to be eating proteins you need to be eating fruit you need to be eating veg I know it sounds like a grandma talking but it’s true your body needs these minerals so you can grow the tallest possible now I’ll also leave a really useful link in the description below all about healthy balanced diets it’s by the NHS and I’d highly recommend everyone to read it tip number three get enough sleep most of our growth actually happens when we’re sleeping and that’s when our body releases the most amount of growth hormone now if you’re not sleeping enough it’s actually hurting the amount of growth hormone that your body releases so you’re actually not helping yourself grow to your full potential now you’re probably thinking well how would sleep should I get what’s the healthy amount well it all depends on your age and how many hours you get so what I will do is I’ll leave more information in the description below for you feel free to check it out and if you’re struggling to fall asleep I did make a video on this a while ago leave a link up here and in the description too tip number four is all about exercise now when we do exercise it boosts our hormones it boosts our growth hormones it makes the processes foods differently and it contributes to muscle growth now all of this can affect our physical appearance including height now if you’re 5 to 18 years of age you need to be aiming for 60 minutes of exercise every single day so what you need to do is put those phones away and exercise but first watch this entire video get all the tips and then put your phone away and go and exercise I’ll also leave a really useful link in the description below which has got all the different age groups and how much exercise you should be doing tip number five many people actually lose height without even knowing it think about this you’re watching this video right now you’re either sat or standing but how you sat how are you standing what’s you’re posture like so tip number five is all to do with posture now think about this example for a second you’ve come to the doctor’s office you’ve come to the nurse and you’ve been asked to take your height now you probably don’t stand slouched do you when you’re getting your height you probably do what I do and you stand the straight as possible to get the best result it might feel unnatural though so what you need to do is make good posture your natural stance and you might think to yourself but Abraham that’s easy I just stand straight but it’s a lot more difficult than that what I will do is I’ll leave a link in the description below it’s an NHS article on how to maintain good posture and I guarantee you if you do it properly it will make a massive difference now some of the messages that I received to make a video on this week’s topic had been a little upsetting to read so I just want to say please don’t compare yourselves to others I don’t think I’ve ever personally thought about someone’s height when I meet them I focus on people’s qualities and you should do that too focus on your great qualities don’t think about it don’t let it get to you and always remember that you’re awesome see you next week all of these will contribute to your physical experience, experience, appearance without even knowing it think about it you’re watching this video right now you
