You’ve got a bad habit and you probably don’t even know it. For years your parents, teachers and coaches have told you to sit and stand upright, but like many people you found it more comfortable to slouch.
Little do you realize, slouching affects many areas of your life — the first impression you have on a date, whether you get promoted at work, the amount of respect others give to you.
The truth is that you probably don't notice how much time you spend hunched over, while texting or using mobile devices, when working at your computer, relaxing in front of the TV, or even when working out at the gym.
If left uncorrected, these poor posture habits can lead to physical problems like pain in your neck, back and shoulders. In fact, there is an 80% chance that you will experience lower back pain at some point in your life* and slouching can make it worse.
"Tiny tweaks can lead to big changes,” says social psychologist Dr. Amy Cuddy, who tells people that focusing on posture correction can help you feel more powerful.
In her viral TED Talk, Dr. Cuddy says that your body language defines who you are. Slouching projects a weak image to the world, but a person who sits or stands upright shows strength.
Thankfully there is a brilliant new device that can help you achieve perfect posture in just a couple of weeks. Forget about uncomfortable and ridiculous looking back braces that stop working the minute you take them off - this thing is discrete, easy to use, and it works.
