When discussing posture, we often refer to your body’s overall position as you stand, sit, or lie down.
Most experts would agree that a "good" overall posture involves physical positions that reduce stress on the body by balancing the load placed on the muscles and ligaments that support the spine.
If you've looked in the mirror and noticed that your posture doesn't look as balanced as you'd like - not to mention it doesn’t feel as balanced as you’d like - you may be wondering what you can do to improve it.
One of the best ways to improve your posture is through motion.
Changing positions frequently during the day, stretching, and specific postural exercises are all ways to improve your posture.
Good posture helps you keep your bones and joints in proper alignment, which helps reduce the wear and tear on your joints and decrease the strain on the ligaments that support your spine.
