Posture is a position through which the body is held upright against gravity in any position – standing, sitting or lying down. A good posture involves the training for your body where it is able to walk, sit and stand with the least strain to the muscles that support it and the ligaments that help in its movement. A proper posture keeps bones and joints in proper alignment so that the wear and tear of joints is at a minimum thereby preventing arthritis. Besides, it keeps the spine in good condition without unduly straining the ligaments that hold the joints of the surfaces as well as preventing the spine from becoming fixed in positions that are abnormal.A good posture also prevents fatigue of muscles due to its proper use and allows the body to use optimum energy besides preventing backache and muscular pain. On the whole, it contributes to a good and charming appearance.
