Most people think of posture in terms of alignment — proper posture means sitting or standing up straight, with your chest out and your shoulders back. That’s what we were taught as kids, after all. And we were taught to achieve this posture through effort. Proper posture, defined this way, is difficult to maintain. Some people manage to do it with tension and effort; others just give up and resign themselves to a life of “bad posture”.
