7 thing you should know about your posture

  1. Your ears, shoulders, hips, knees , and ankles should align when standing.ba
  2. When sitting at the office, tilt your screen to avoid craning your neck.
  3. It’s best to sleep on your back on a firm mattress.
  4. Stand up straight
  5. Stand up and look in a mirror. Check out which areas are preventing you from standing up straight. Are your shoulders slouched forward? Is your head down? Is your back bent? Straighten out whatever is slouching and observe the difference.
  6. Your ears, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles should make one straight line. Relax your shoulders and slightly bend your knees — you don’t want to look like a robot. If you’re standing for a long period of time, make sure to continue shifting your weight every so often.
  7. If you’re bending down to pick up something, bend your knees and hips; don’t bend down and grab the object with just your waist.
