The way we stand, sit and walk says a lot about about our health. Does your posture stack up?

Often when we’re children, our parents would tell us to “stand up straight” and “stop slouching.” And they weren’t just nagging.

Correct posture is not only really important for proper bodily functions, but it projects you in a better light – as someone who is confident and poised.

Bad posture can result in fatigue, bad circulation, and chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, among many other ailments. Factors such as stress, improper ergonomics, genetics, ill-fitting shoes, obesity, weak muscles and low self-esteem among others can contribute to poor posture.
