How to Grow Taller

How Tall Will I Be?

That is one of the many alarming questions of our teenagers. Not only that. How tall will I be, my brother is younger and already taller than me, I’m the smallest in the class, etc…

First, we have to realise the growth does not take place by any rules or it does not follow any guides.  It is completely genetic. That does not mean you will have to be same as your brother, dad, grandma or grandpa.

Genetics may be a mixture of anything and you might and up very tiny or very tall in spite of the size of your family members.

Also, and remember this one, please, masturbation, smoking, food, sleep, etc; has nothing to do with growth.

You can drink thousands of litres of milk; eat vitamins till the day you will die, nothing on this planet will change that.

Growth takes time till about seven years after the commencement of your puberty. And that can be anywhere between 9-17 years of your age. The latest possibility to grow will give you then age of 25 years. The other fact is you maybe are smaller this month from your pears. This situation can change. Again, nobody knows.


But there are exceptions to anything. Please remember exceptions are very, very few, though.

Most likely your growth stops at much earlier stage.


How exactly you will grow and how much, the answer is absolutely clear - nobody on this planet knows.

It is like telling weather forecast in 10,000 years in an advance.

These things do not tend to follow our wishes. If that would be true every one of us would be a model.

We all look different and act differently. Not exactly like our parents.

Because I play basketball or football, genes are not interested in - at all. It does not regulate our height and practising sports do not make us any taller.


I've read somewhere Napoleon hang himself on a tree branch (you may try on a bar) every morning for 10-15 minutes.

And that contributed to his growth by few inches. If that is true or not I have no idea.

Also, in the morning a person is at her/his tallest due to rest. During day while walking body compresses itself and it is on the shorter side.

The best thing is to come in terms with what we are. There are advantages and disadvantages of being tall. Make the best out of your statue.
