My good posture has always been noticed and complimented. I notice as I get older I have to think about it more than just doing it. Good for you for thinking about this important aspect of our body.

Thank you for the reminder.
I have a chronic sore neck from whiplash in a car wreck in 1978. The physical therapist told me to improve my posture to help my neck. I often forget to stand up straight.
I read in a Yoga Journal to sit and stand with, "ears over your shoulders over your hips." I do it when I remember!
We tend to look slimmer when we stand up straight, and can prevent problems as we age with good posture.
While you are standing straight, add one more exercise by sucking in your belly. Two exercises we can do all day long!
Keep it up!!

I have been working on my posture with a physiotherapist for a few months now. I have a curvature in my spine that makes my shoulders round forward. It does help my neck feel better when I can straighten up. Good for you!!

Hi, There, Spark Friends. I found I can improve my confidence level 50% and my stamina simply by sitting up straighter with shoulders down, back and neck straight, and head almost floating on my neck. I just know when I walk away from this computer today to go run errands, awareness of posture will help my energy level. I've found it helps to pause during routine walking and exercises to "fix" my posture. One positive side effect is that pain from a neck bone spur has almost vanished after working on my posture for several months. Maybe it could help you, too!
