1. Have a ball. If you’re bound to a desk, I suggest sitting on a yoga ball. It may look totally silly, but it’s so good for your core and your posture. Here at the LC headquarters, we rotate sitting on an exercise ball.
2. Time it. Every hour, squeeze together your shoulder blades for an instant posture pick-me-up. Also, be sure to give these stretches a try.
3. Think up! If you feel your head or shoulders jut forward, pull them back and act as if a string were pulling you up from the top of your head.
4. Get some help. If you sit in a chair most of the day, try getting a back pad to add some lumbar support and keep your posture in check.
