Perfect Posture: Can It Be Achieved?

By Genevieve Cunningham

Do you have good posture? Once upon a time, just about everyone had good posture. Your parents constantly told you to stand up straight. Your teachers wouldn't let you slouch in your seat. Posture was important, and everyone knew it. In today's world, we give way less thought to our posture -- and it definitely shows. We're always slouching over our phones, hiding our heads, or slumped forward watching TV. It's time to make some changes! To get your posture moving in a better direction, take a look at these tips to help. 

What Makes Good Posture?

Good posture has a very distinct look. The shoulders are pulled back instead of slouching forward, and they are relaxed down away from the ears. The chest is out and the stomach is pulled in -- belly button toward the spine. You'll keep your head up looking forward, and you'll avoid slouching for any length of time. 

How Does Yours Measure Up?

If you want to know how your posture measures up, sit or stand in front of a mirror and look at yourself in profile. Make an assessment, or ask someone to help you judge our posture. If yours is in need of improvement, these tips might help:

Tips for Improving Posture

  • Exercise - There are specific exercises (just check the internet!) that can help strengthen the muscles needed for good posture. Follow the exercises consistently for positive results.

  • Practice - The best way to improve posture is to practice. It will be hard at first, but the more you do it, the easier it will get. 

  • Chiropractic care - Chiropractic care can help release tension and pain, which then makes holding good posture easier. Chiropractors may also be able to give you effective tips for improving this aspect of your life. A healthy spine is important for good posture, and chiropractic care can definitely push you in the right direction.
