Are You a Slouch? (3 Easy Ways to Improve Your Posture)

"Remember when you were growing up, how your parents and teachers loved to tell you to sit up straight? And you’d respond by rolling your eyes, sitting up straight (ish) and then two minutes later slumping back down into your chair, only to be reminded again. Fast forward to today and how many times a day do you mean to sit up straight only to find yourself sitting with a banana spine, low riding in your chair or bent so forward so that you can hold your head up with your hand? If you are like the rest of us, the answer is probably, everyday"

Prolonged bouts of sitting increase cancer risk

"According to the research presented, sedentary behaviour – meaning too much sitting rather than just getting too little exercise – is emerging as a new risk factor for cancer. And it seems the longer you sit, the higher your risk irrespective of how much you weigh or how much exercise you do."

Guidelines to Improve Posture

http://www.spine-health.com/wellness/er ... _120310102

"As already discussed, for correction of poor posture it is important to determine where improvement is needed, such as when sitting in an office chair. Next, patients must work on changing daily habits to correct those areas. This effort will improve back support and over time help decrease back pain and neck pain. It will take some effort and perseverance, and will seem a little unnatural at first. It is typical to feel uncomfortable, and even feel a little taller, but over time the new posture will seem natural and more comfortable. Following are some guidelines of how to achieve good posture and ergonomics in the workplace and other situations."
