Posture is a very important part of leading a healthy lifestyle.  Most obvious to chiropractors is the face that poor posture alters the relationship between the bones of the spine which can inhibit the function of the nerves that pass between those bones.  However, there are many other reasons (as if you still needed them!) to improve posture.  Standing up straight increases lung capacity, which improves blood oxygenation.  This will allow you to think more clearly and have more energy throughout the day.  Posture also  affects confidence!  Think of those people in your life you view as powerful and positive you wont see them slouching over giving speeches or otherwise changing the world.  Other people will treat you with more respect if you carry yourself in such a way that commands that respect.  So pay a little extra attention to your posture this week let us know how it makes you feel!
