Look in mirror
Look in your mirror and assess your posture. Hold your head up and your shoulders straight.
Train core muscles
Train and strengthen the core muscles that support your back, stomach, and middle by doing crunches, yoga, or pilates.
Adjust your work chair or purchase an ergonomically correct one. Your work station should be at elbow height. Tilt the computer monitor upward to eliminate neck strain.
Set rearview mirror
Set your car’s rearview mirror to a position that forces you to sit up. Each time you look at the mirror, you’ll be reminded to sit straighter.
Avoid stomach sleeping
Avoid sleeping on your stomach, which strains the back and neck muscles. Sleep on your back with one pillow.
