Reap healthy benefits by improving your posture

Good posture is one of those things we all know we “should” have, but don’t bother to put effort into. Posture may not seem that important but it can have an affect on the rest of your life. Don’t know where to start? We made this guide to explain how bad posture affects your body and to help fix some of the most common posture issues.
What are the effects of poor posture?
Continuous bad posture can lead to extra fatigue, due to your muscles overcompensating for your position choices. Slouching bends the spine, which can affect circulation, which can in turn lead to deterioration of vertebrae. Sitting for more than 6 hours a day can increase your risk of heart disease by over 60% and can cut off 7 years of life.  Sitting can also put you at risk for weight gain by affecting your blood sugar. If poor seated posture is added onto extensive sitting, chronic neck, back, and shoulder pain is likely to follow.
