What is good posture?

Good Posture

Your mother was right: Work to achieve good posture. You can stretch to improve your posture. From the side, your ear should line up with the tip of your shoulder, your hip joint, the back of your knee (don't lock out your knees when standing), and the front of the protruding bone on your ankle. Stretching exercises in front of a mirror will help.
