Having a healthy posture is not just about how you look, it has a lot of health benefits as well. A good posture keeps all muscles, bones and joints in the correct alignment and helps release pressure on the spine. Bad posture, on the other hand, can lead to headaches and inflammation in the back or neck.
Incorrect posture is not a very bad habit, but it can be caused by very weak or tight muscles. And if you know which muscles need extra care, it is very possible to fix your posture.
