At the time, it seemed like we were just being nagged but how wrong we were.

Poor posture has a significant effect on our health and how we look.

Not only does it make you look older, but it can lead to a potbelly, a double chin, a dowager’s hump as well as some serious internal problems.

So when you're on your feet, stand up straight with your shoulders back and your chin up.

And when you're sitting down, keep your back straight and roll your shoulders back.

It may be a little uncomfortable at first but it's well worth the effort.
