Why Does Posture Matter?
How good your body alignment is, the better your body works. Sitting or standing in correct posture allows your muscles to move at the exact angles and forces they are supposed to. If you don’t do so, then your body has to compensate with other muscles and joints. Later, you will notice tight muscles, sore joints, pain, and reduced function.
Coming to good posture, it is beyond your physical health that helps you look taller and thinner. This also results in your head going up, belly going in and shoulder go back. A good posture also helps you feel more confident and the people around you.
Is My Posture Really That Bad?
Some people always stand up straight and still their posture modifies when they use electronic gadgets. If you think about it, most of our gadget use occurs with our arms coming towards the middle of our bodies and involves us looking down. Hence, it causes internal rotation of the shoulder joint and put a lot of strain on the neck and shoulders.
Having a proper workstation setup is key for long-term computer work. If you’re just working temporarily, and don’t have an ideal workstation, there are still some things you can do to protect yourself. Try sitting in a chair comfortably or against a wall. Now, place your laptop on your lap and keep your arms and shoulders relaxed. You can also switch to a standing desk. While this might not be possible for everyone if you have a chance to use one, you could see a few great benefits.
To improve your standing posture, follow the image below from head-to-toe:
- Eyes should be looking straight ahead.

- Shoulders should be pulled back.
- The spine should be straight.
- Hips should be under your shoulders.
- Weight should be evenly distributed on both legs.
