How to Check Your Posture

Your physical therapist will suggest you to check your posture repeatedly while you are working at your desk for this purpose a small mirror place at your desk so you can see your profile from the corner of your eye and it can help you to remind to keep your body in upright posture while sitting you can also set an alarm on your phone or computer so that it can ring  after 15 minutes and remind you that not to slouch forward

Some time especially if you’re combining strengthening and stretching exercises into your daily routine you eventually won’t have to think about this anymore  upright posture feel better and more natural than slouching or leaning forward as it is the body anatomical position 

The human body was simply built to be in different positions instead of remaining in the same position for lonh periods of time   so if you are performing desk worl or you have to sit for a long time then make sure that you perform simple movements during this period of time so that your body doesn’t deform abnormally
