Bad posture is something we all have issues with from time to time. For most of us, we grew up with our parents continuously critiquing our posture at the dinner table, at the computer, when lounging around or just standing and sitting in general, there has always been that guidance to pull the shoulders back and stand up straight. So having said that, I’m not going to be preaching about how bad your posture is and how you’re going to suffer throughout life with back and neck problems. Instead I am going to point out the major signs of bad posture and how to work towards correcting these positions.
Whilst the general consensus for a text book posture is shoulders back, chest out, chin tucked in, hips neutral and standing tall, there a few key “sins” to avoid when talking about bad posture.
Now that you are all equipped with the best tips for correct posture at your disposal, it is important to put it to practice. Stick to these guidelines and you will find your body will thank you and reward you day in, day out.
