Posture analysis

Many people allow their shoulders to slouch and stand in a manner that would have our grandmothers hapring. Poor posture is terrible for your health and might also be contributing to less confidence and weight gain. Because standing with proper posture uses more of the core muscles than slouching, standing correctly may help you burn fat, gain strength and benefit your health.

Not only does it use more muscles and burn more calories, standing with a poor posture build on your feelings of self. Sitting lazily build feelings of poor self-worth and lowers confidence. Any loss of confidence can hinder your ability to stick to your diet.
