THE CORSICANA SEMI-WEEKLY LIGHT. TUESDAY, JANUARY 81, 1999. HEALTH, BEAUTY AND POISE' HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR PERSONALITY . By VERONICA DENGE1, GRACE LENDS DISTINCTION Have you ever particularly ob- 'seryed the difference in postures assumed by people sitting In the same room. Someone will be sprawled on the base of her Cross your legs above your knecg •pine in the big chair, another will have her feet wound around the rungs of a straight chair. You, I am sure, will be sitting comfortably straight with your feet 'loosely crossed or the legs crossed correctly. And your hands will be quietly laid—palms up and one over the other, or in another gracefully relaxed position —In your lap. You won't twist your handkerchief or bite at a fingernail, or pick the upholstered arm of your chair. Or will you? . The correct way to rise from a chair Is to place the feet firmly on the floor one a bit forward, and leave the chair without the aid of a push from your hands. Try it and see how much easier it really is. Sitting down Is another graceless movement on the part of many women—and men, too. Properly, one should approach the chair, turn, and with one foot a bit forward should sit down in one movement, and not let oneself down by degrees, all the time leaning on the arms for •upport You can create an air of distinction as you enter a room, lit down, or stand up, Just by the way you handle yourself. Your clothes will look smarter—notice the flowing walk and gracefu movements of models at good fashion shows. And if you cross your legs— as so many do—when you are sitting down, how do you do it? Notice the picture—the legs are crossed* above the knee—not at the knee. By crossing the legs above the knee and adjusting the skirt properly, the loose foot will not tend to point upward In an awkward position. Because It IB relaxed, the foot will hang naturally and the toes follow the line of the other foot. But If the leg Is crossed BO that one knee lays on top of the other, the loose foot goes off at a tangent, and the toes point skyward. Just try this now and prove It to yourself. Notice how the under knee pushes the calf of the leg out of contour, too? Do remember to always keep one floot flat on the floor—It is most unattractive to rest the foot one the heel. Will you watch this? AD. reqnMti for penonal "Health.
