Sit Up Straight!

Burning Question: Why Sit Up Straight?

From the Wall Street Journal / May 14, 2013

Throughout the ages, parents and teachers have always scolded children to sit up straight. It turns out that they were right all along – sitting up straight is beneficial to the body in many ways. With more people than ever sitting at a desk and staring at a computer screen all day, poor posture has become the norm rather than the exception. This slouched or slumped posture can cause long term damage to your spine including musculoskeletal changes and low back pain, along with inefficient breathing and reduced mental acumen as a result of decreased oxygen flow to the brain. Proper posture not only prevents these degenerative changes, it also boosts a positive attitude!
