3 Benefits to good posture
One of the most memorable things about my childhood was growing up with a benevolent dictator in the house. My mom gave us no breathing room, “ Don’t eat with your mouth open, don’t chew gum, don’t talk when adults are talking, flush after yourself, Wash your hands “ etc. Like an annoying prophet, she established the never-ending commandments and if you dared disobey, not only would you get a good spanking, she’d nag your ears off.
The main thing her and I always had issues with was posture, I can’t even remember how many times she told me to stop slouching, and sit up. As annoying as those reminders were, they’ve served me well through the years. I recently read an article which went into depth on this topic, but here are three of my favorite benefits which I’ve personally experienced;
* Improved Mood
* Improved memory and learning
* Makes you look more confident and powerful
And a bonus when it comes to taking pictures is it makes you look taller & slimmer, “Some poor posture positions cause your belly to protrude, giving you a “beer belly” profile. And slumping over makes you appear shorter than you are. Standing up straight will correct these issues and improve your appearance.”- Art of Manliness
