Professional Woman sitting up straightPoor posture develops over time due to many factors, such as lifestyle (time spent on mobile devices), work environment (bad work ergonomics), injury (back pain may cause a habitual change in how you carry your body) and weight gain or loss.

As we age and as poor postural habits develop, it can cause many  physical problems. Here are the top reasons to improve your posture.

  • Reduce headaches
  • Less muscle tension
  • Improved nervous system functioning
  • Decreased wear and tear on joints
  • Better circulation
  • Improved digestive function
  • Less fatigue
  • Better balance
  • Improved self-image
  • Appear more confident

Consider that it takes more effort to have poor posture. Over time this can cause achy joints, sore muscles and fatigue. Outwardly you may display symptoms such as;

  • Rounded shoulders
  • Hunchback appearance
  • Forward head
  • Over-pronated feet
  • Pelvic tilt
  • Pot belly
