The Benefits of Sitting Upright

The first step to improving your posture is learning to sit correctly. This means sitting up

straight in your chair, with your head and neck in line with the rest of your spine, notes Mayo

Clinic. Make sure your feet are firmly on the ground, not crossed, and that your shoulders

are relaxed. Avoid hunching or slouching, as this can put extra strain on the spine.
