Beauty Tip of the Day – Posture Perfect

The way you carry yourself says a lot about your personality. If you slouch around, it shows your lack of confidence. So stand tall. Pull your stomach in,  head high and shoulders back. Without sticking your boobs out!

Not only does a good posture work wonders for your looks and how clothes fit, it’s good for your health too. If you slouch you’re more likely to have back problems and not breathing correctly. Your not breathing all the way to the bottom of your lungs and not getting the oxygen  needed.

You might try to  straighten yourself in front of the mirror going out but the next thing you know you, you’ve got back your slouchy ways.  You have to keep reminding yourself. The best way to practice walking straight is by balancing a couple of books on your head.  Push your shoulders down and back cross your hands at your back and holding on to the opposite elbows.

Draw an imaginary line on the ground beneath your feet. Your footprints should fall on either side, as close to the line as possible.  Toes pointing outward, not inward. Move as little of your upper body as possible.
