If you've resigned yourself to working from a couch, or even from a desk, you've probably got used to hunched shoulders and a achy back and neck.
Did you know that slouched posture can reak havock on your mind, body, spirit and have serious consequences for your image and your health? “If you have bad posture, you can become a target for some people who may assume that you’re not confident or have a weakness,” says Carmen Elizabeth who offers a 12-week posture clinic.
“You can appear shorter and people may assume you’re tired.” Poor posture also has negative health consequences like “chronic fatigue, muscle fatigue, confusion, overwhelm, headaches and back pain. You can also have sleep and digestive problems, difficulty focussing and concentrating. It causes so many issues,” Carmen Elizabeth says.
Army posture is not the ultimate goal. Instead, “good posture maintains three natural curves in the spine at the neck, mid-back, and low back,” says Carmen Elizabeth. When you look in the mirror, your eyes should be level, as should your shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles. From the side, your ears, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles should create a straight line that, again, maintains the natural curves in the spine.
If you frequently notice that you appear slouched in photos or videos — or that your hubby is always bugging you to sit up straight — try these tips for correcting the habits that cause bad posture in the first place.

1. Check your smartphone.
