A good night’s sleep is not only necessary for increasing height but for the overall well being of the body. This is because your body releases HGH while you are sleeping. Production of this hormone and others may go down if you aren’t getting enough shut-eye.

Poor posture may make you look shorter than you actually are.  If you regularly slump or slouch, these curves may shift to accommodate your new posture. This can cause pain in your neck and back. Being careful of how you stand and sit is also a very important factor.

5. Yoga

If you don’t like to exercise then Yoga is a more calming and relaxed way to work your muscles which will also help you to increase height. You can practice yoga in the comfort of your own home. It also helps in tightening the muscles, aligning the body and helps with posture.
