This is what your body is supposed to look like

This is what your body is supposed to look like when you stand properly. That is the mysterious straight line that everybody keeps talking about.

Myths Of Correct Posture?

If you read as many self-help articles about a correct posture and how to have good posture as I do, you'll often come across these similar advice, "about standing with your back and head against a wall, to form a straight line."

Another common advice is to imagine a string coming out of your chest pulling you upwards.

What I've found in those two most commonly distributed advice is that the first one doesn't address a non-neutral pelvis position.

Also it depends on the shape of your bottom and your legs (hyper-extended or not) - some people will have difficultly placing the heels close to the wall.

Personally, I can't seem to tuck my heels to the wall naturally and my back is not completely aligned with the wall. Thus, I don't know if I have a straight line as shown in the above picture.

In the second advice, I found myself standing with a 'military stance', standing at attention at command.

After more research, I feel that there are several posture myths...or rather, misunderstanding. Do see a posture specialist to get a correct assessment of your posture.



Correct Posture Picture/Photo

Here is another posture photo.

correct spine for posture
Posture varies from person to person and can be interpreted as nonverbal communication.

The first one is the correct posture, the third one is the military posture which I was talking about. You should only have that posture if you're in the military. It is not suitable for us everyday folks.

A better picture of this illustration (as shown below) is found in this Chiropractor Wellness Canadian website on posture.

Correct Posture For Sitting

Sit well back in chair with body in balance.

Besides developing good posture habits of sitting (or standing for that matter), the strength of our stomach muscles also affects our posture. A good way to train these core stomach muscles are the use of ergonomic ball chairs.

Correct Posture For Stooping Or Bending Down
