Good Posture vs Bad Posture
Posture is the way your body is positioned when you are sitting, standing, or lying down. To have good posture means that your body is positioned in a way that puts the least amount of strain on your muscles and joints. Bad posture may be caused by slouching or slumping for an extended period of time. Bad posture can have a number of effects on your health and body such as muscle tension; neck, back and joint pain; tension headaches and reduced blood circulation.
