As I am writing this blog that aims to convince you to improve your posture, I sit elegantly and confidently with good posture. This small change that you can implement into your life will benefit you in ways that you never knew you could change.

Posture - what is so special about it? Other than the extensive list of health benefits (enhancement of blood circulation, improvement of digestion, improvement of glandular health - the list goes on), we can’t forget the other benefits it has that changes things we didn’t even know NEEDED to be changed: increase of focus and productivity, boost of self-confidence. But wait, get a hold of this. Good posture also makes you look taller and slimmer

I’m sold.  

Having good posture is the simplest and cheapest thing you can do to improve the way you look for work. Let’s face it, regardless of how much you love your job, that’s the last place you want to wear your nice clothes. But you still want to look good, don’t you? Stand up straight. This will sharpen your jaw line, slim you down and make you taller. Thanks to this - your confidence has already improved for the day. Looking better will automatically make you feel better, and therefore project confidence on to your colleagues, leading them to treat you with more respect!  

Not only will it make other people think higher of you, but it will increase your focus and productivity. The two main things you need in any job. Having good productivity will result in you leaving work satisfied, happy that you didn’t waste your day. Regarding focus - in our busy quick-response 100mph world we live in today, we can all admit it is hard to keep focus. But if you keep your back straight and your head back, consider your focus significantly improved.

The last thing I am going to tell you about having good posture, is that it reduces lower back pains significantly. Back pain is a very common problem in the workplace due to sitting in the same position for lengthy amounts of time. Your comfort is the top priority, so put yourself first.

Improve your posture.
