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 Cross-Legged

Sitting cross-legged is a method of sitting on the floor to rest, stretch, or pause. In some cultures, it is customary to sit cross-legged on the floor to eat. Sitting cross-legged is also common in grade school where it is frequently referred to as sitting criss-cross applesauce. Sitting cross-legged is considered “active rest,” as it requires more muscle use than sitting in a chair and can improve stability and flexibility.

Pool Floats - Inner Tubes - Male (Plan)

Inner tubes are round donut shaped flotation devices for use in water. Inner tubes can be made from plastic or rubber, although ones made from rubber are more durable than the plastic ones. The thick, rubber inner tubes are more suitable for floating on a river or lake, while the plastic inner tubes are more acceptable for pool use.

Crouching - Men (Front)

Crouching is used to make one’s self smaller to hide, go under an object, or to fit in a small space. People crouch by folding their knees and bending their back forward. People can walk in a crouch if they are trying to sneak. Crouching can be used in hide and seek to be less detectable by other players.
