The Importance of Correct Posture in Our Lives

Posture reflects the way you feel about yourself.
We do not inherit good posture; it is adopted by us through understanding and practice.

“Stand up straight. Do not slouch!” How many times did you hear those scolding words while growing up? Maybe more times than you would like to remember. Behind those long forgotten words lies a very valuable and surprising message: Good posture is important because it helps your body function at top speed. It promotes movement efficiency and endurance, and contributes to an overall feeling of well-being.

Correct posture is also good prevention. If you have poor posture, your bones are not properly aligned and your muscles, joints, and ligaments, take more strain than nature intended. Faulty posture may cause you fatigue, muscular strain and, in later stages, pain. In addition, poor posture can affect the position and function of vital organs, particularly those in the abdominal region.

Good posture contributes to good appearance; the person with good posture projects poise, confidence, and dignity.
