Feeling a bit blah? Your posture might have something to do with it—yes, really! Studies have shown that people who sit and stand up straighter often not only feel more motivated and more confident, but more energetic too.
Obviously, the connection between posture and emotions is still a bit of a mystery, but the results speak for themselves. Sitting and standing tall doesn’t just feel good—these postures can be very real mood boosters!
That said, if you've been feeling some aches and pains related to your posture, don’t worry. We’ve got your back (literally!) for any adjustments you might need.
Why It Matters
Consider this. Slouching strains your joints and muscles and sets you up for a day of unnecessary aches and that lingering feeling of "something's off." On the flipside, standing tall can really give your day—and comfort—a noticeable lift.
Our posture can be beneficial in so many ways. The next time you catch yourself slouching, try this. Take a few seconds to pause, pull your shoulder blades back and together, relax your shoulders down away from your ears, and look up.
Practicing small posture resetting habits like this can lead to a noticeable shift in how you feel day in and day out. With practice, it will get easier and easier, and soon you'll start "catching" yourself standing tall and feeling great!
