1. Pay attention to how you stand and sit. Make it a habit to regularly check whether your shoulders are slumping, and pull them back when they do.
2. Good posture projects confidence and power. Train your body to sit upright which strengthens your back and core, while relieving tension that can cause pain.
3. Employees and students who sit up straighter are more likely to succeed. Sitting upright increases your alertness and engagement. Use good posture to your advantage.
4. This is a hard one, but practice tiny posture corrections throughout the day (especially while sitting at work or in a class). Pull your shoulders back, lengthen your spine and breathe.
5. If you’re going to sit upright and stand taller, then you need a way to make posture correction a daily practice. Be willing to spend money on a solution to slouching and take your time to train your body in proper posture.
