Due to heath issues, I’m currently bedridden. I’d like to know the best way to foster facial growth while mewing in my bed, with a laptop on my belly when I’m working. Can I continue to mew adopting this posture while working (look at the man on the picture below) ? Should I adopt a new posture ?

Pillow for watching TV in bed

If you want the best chin tuck I think on your back w/ no pillows is ideal; lengthens the spine, pulls the head back so its situated above the spine and really pushes your rear tongue against the soft palate. It’s not very practical for stuff like reading or watching tv though.

On your side with one pillow so your head is level/parallel w/ the bed whilst doing a chin tuck is fine too though if you find it more comfortable.

I don’t recommend doing that guys posture. It’s essentially forward-head which is bad. Maybe you could sit upright instead like you were in a chair?

Hmmm.  Less concerned about face than lower back.  I’d just get a musical instrument for blowing…even a harmonica…and do a small amount of alternate nasal breathing exercises (pranayama) for your nasal airway.  

As I understand it, the point of the chin tuck is to reshape airway in day & part is muscle retraining. Both these work together.  The thing is that working *directly* on airway and muscles may be enough.  Muscles my be hard now…but airway could be worked on.  It is a good idea to work on airway when sedentary. Usually while walking around in day we get some airway help.  Without that benefit…you could try directly.  Also, vitamin D.  🙂   For muscles, I’d try and work on it more after not being bed ridden or you will make yourself mad.  lol  At least have good posture while eating.  All those forces are good to direct right.  Bite forces are strong…and you’ll know this if you ever bit into a fork!

This being said… Dr. Mew generally is concerned with hunched shoulders.  He says it stretches the back muscles out..and the front ones are tighter.  I don’t know what he’d say about being bed ridden.  Suppose you could ask?

I think physical therapists may know as they deal with this a lot. I would lean toward a free pass .. as there are ways to contract upper back/shoulder muscles that have stretched  afterwards.  Just be sure to watch your lower back.  If muscle pressure is on abnormally curved spine it can hurt back.  I don’t know much about this except I hurt my back by sitting in bed.  I think it’s because lumbar support was missing.  Getting a forward curved lower spine shape while working was not good for me.  I thought I was sitting up pretty good.  However..keeping a good spine shape is important.  I didn’t have any trouble up top.  There was less weight/strain in that area than lower.  If I did need to strengthen the back muscles, I’d seek guidance from a certified physical trainer that works at hospitals, those bed ridden or at nursing homes.

There is a certain category of people who prefer to work lying in bed for various reasons. This posture can provoke health problems, both psychological and physical. If possible, one should change postures and actively involve all body parts. If you cannot take care of yourself, it is good to know about assisted living in Florida. If a person uses a bed to work, they should be in an upright position and avoid overstraining different parts of the body. A pillow can also be rolled up to support the lower back and placed under the back to take some of the pressure off the spine.
