Human resting positions are a variety of natural postures that humans perform to achieve a state of increased calmness. Ranging from lying down, kneeling, squatting, and sitting, resting positions are proven to decrease muscle tension, slow heart rates, lower blood pressure, and promote other related health benefits. As both formal and informal states, resting positions can help humans cope with stress, pain, anxiety, anger, and depression and are often naturally integrated into a day to day lives. Resting positions are physical responses that lessen the stresses that we place on our bodies by actively standing upright, walking, and exercising.

Sitting (side) is the side profile view of someone sitting. From the side, you can see the protrusions of one’s facial features, chest, belly and the bends in their spine and legs as they sit.
