Your posture says a lot about you. If you want to get a lasting impression from people around you, start it with good posture. You look ten times better if you walk and stand as you should, and more than this, it is a real help to look slender. Proper posture is the finest exercise of all that plumps-up your health and confidence. If you think you have a problem in your posture, you may need a thorough overhaul.

Proper posture involves training the body to stand, walk, sit, and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on supporting muscles and ligaments. It keeps bones and joints in correct alignment so muscles are being used properly that contributes to good appearance and health.

Poor posture creates muscle tension around the shoulder and neck that also stresses the spine. Kisner and Colby, in "Therapeutic Exercise, 3rd edition", state that this adaptive shortening of soft tissues and muscle weakness, caused by prolonged poor postural habits is considered to be a postural dysfunction. During this stressful time, posture suffers, and breathing patterns may become shallow and tensed. For this reason, it is very helpful to adapt correct and proper posture.

Signs of Poor Posture

1.A slouching and hunching shoulders
2.Lower back that is arching too much
3.Head and neck that is jabbing forward and down
4.Slumping forward while sitting

If you have all these signs, don't fret. I have listed up tips on how to get perfect posture and enhance your overall well-being. All you need to do is believe that you deserve the posture that can impress others.
