  • In England at the age of 5 we were graded on our report card for deportment.
    We stood in lines to file in to class and the teachers encouraged a straight back.
    I am almost 72 years next week this month and I still sit with my back straight.
    They did a lot of things right in my generation. Pat in Maine U.S.

    This is awesome advice! I noticed my shoulders have felt tight, as well as not feeling like I've lost any weight. My husband remarked that I hunch over when on the computer, which isn't good because I work at a computer 9 hours a day for my job. I merely stood up straight, and it seemed to take five pounds off in the mirror! Posture really makes a difference; I may need to visit a chiropractor, but I'll be sure to strengthen my core and follow your advice. www.northpolechiropractic.com
  • Thank you so much. A friend asked me why I was leaning over as I walked. I had not realized I wasn't standing straight. This will help.

    Great Article. A great reason to start doing core exercises and I now inspired to add more of this to my exercise routine. Thanks!
  • I have always been proud of my posture, as a large woman all my life, I am blessed with remarkable self confidence. Three years in a wheel chair, then walker, then cane has changed my world. I am learning to walk tall again, and find that my eyes tend to look down, from fear of falling. This is one of the things I have carried to a trainer for help. Article is a good one, somethings are out of my range, but others are well received and I will incorporate to my routine.
  • Was just talking with my health coach about this issue earlier today. I've had terrible posture since childhood and have been disappointed that it has not improved as I have lost weight and become more fit. I guess I'll just have to focus more on the exercises described here.
  • Thanks for sharing.
  • My back always hurt me. I think that's why my left hip hurt me so bad because of my back. But when I walk I always walk straight up.
  • I have had terrible posture since I was a child and in recent years have suffered from a pinched nerve in my neck, sciatica, bone spurs on my spine, and arthritis in my spine. I am still pretty young to be having all of this. So I am working on my posture. It is something that I try to think about all day long because otherwise I will slip back into my old habits.

  • If you've had a swayback since childhood, can these exercises fix that in adulthood?
  • Great list that covers all my issues with posture....now if only I could store it somewhere so I can get to the list any time I want to work!
  • This is a good list and I need to fix my posture thanks
