Got Good Posture?

Are you guilty of bad posture? Even though slumping is an unattractive quality to look upon in another person, if you have bad posture, the only person you are hurting is yourself. Standing straight and tall can not only serve your musculo-skeletal system well but also your tendons and joints. Good posture can prevent headaches and backaches alike, as well as chronic pain in other parts of the body. It is something which can help improve your entire health profile - both mental and physical. It can keep many parts of your body from becoming tired and degenerating through your daily activities and even your life. Focus on letting your shoulders fall back naturally and pulling your stomach muscles inward. Your chin should come down towards your chest, but should not be artificially jerked down. This will help strengthen the muscles that automatically support good posture.
