I am feeling very under confident because of my height. I am only 5ft 2 inches tall. How can I increase my height?
Height is governed by a hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland situated at the base of the brain. Growth normally stops after completion of puberty (which mostly happens in the late teen years).There is no safe known way to increase height thereafter.
A person’s height usually depends on health, nutrition and your genes (your parents’ and grandparents’ height).
The average height for men in India is 5 feet 5 inches and for women is 5 feet. The human growth spurt only takes place during puberty, and usually ends between the ages of 15 and latest 21.
Once you have crossed that age, there are very few chances that your height will increase.
A good posture will give you a lot of self-confidence. Embrace yourself and work on your confidence. I am sure that you have many other qualities that make you stand out, height is very inconsequential. Let me assure you that some of the most vivacious and popular people in the world have been short.
