Bad posture is the leading cause of back pain. Whether you’re sitting, standing or laying down, your posture is being affected. Here are seven ways to improve your posture.
Stand straight up with your shoulders back and stomach tucked in.
Keep your weight on the balls of your heels. If you need to stand for a long time, switch your weight between your toes and heels.
Sleep with your pillow between your legs, or under your knees if you’re on your back.
Don’t sit in the same position for long periods at a time.
While standing, keep your feet shoulder-width apart.
If you have a job that requires you to sit for a long time, get up once every hour and walk, stretch or stand.
Stay sitting up straight and keep your ears, shoulders, and hips aligned.
