Straighten Up and Sit Right

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you see someone sitting up really straight—we’re talking can’t-reach-the-keyboard straight?

What a pompous, arrogant #!$%.

Then, there’s the other-end-of-the-posture spectrum, people who slouch so low you see nothing but a head and the back of a chair.

The key is balance—not too self-important, not too sloth-like. Just your average, run-of-the-mill, good posture. With it, you’ll exude just the right amount of confidence. You’ll look healthy, pleasant and approachable. And you’ll feel better on the inside.

Sitting up straight produces instant benefits—less neck, shoulder and back fatigue, optimal organ and muscle function, enhanced concentration and mental abilities and—are you ready for this?—abs of steel.

Okay, maybe that last one’s a bit of a stretch, but it does make your stomach stronger.

This is true!...I just told my 23 year old daughter this. I even showed her this site. Maybe she will get it, and make her own changes.
