Poor Posture Habits to Break

Do you have good posture throughout the day? Do you tend to have good posture, but have bad habits you must break before they begin to impact your health?

Even if your posture is relatively good, you may find yourself partaking in bad habits every now and again. Here are some of the most common habits:

•    Slouching when sitting in a chair
•    Arching your back when you stand
•    Standing with a flat back
•    Leaning on one leg when standing
•    Hunching over when working at a desk or using your mobile phone
•    Poking your chin upwards when working at a desk
•    Rounded shoulders

Maybe you notice these things. Or maybe they’ve gone undetected in the past. Either way, don’t let these poor posture habits linger. Not only will it ruin your posture over the long run, but it can also have a negative impact on your health, such as back and neck pain.

When you pay attention to your posture throughout the day, you’ll find it easier to break bad habits that are causing you trouble. And once you do that, your posture will be a model for others to follow!
