Having good posture is important for more than looking confident. It is one of the most common contributors to back problems, which 80% of Americans will experience at least once in their lifetime. Your posture doesn’t have to be completely terrible for it to affect your back either; even leaning forward in your office chair at an angle of 30 degrees can cause 3 to 4 times more stress on your back. Luckily, bad posture is easily fixable if you are consistently mindful. It’s important to learn how to have proper posture so that you can minimize or eliminate back pain, whether you are sitting, sleeping, or standing.
