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

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