As far as body mechanics are concerned, few things are more important than having good posture. Having good posture involves having enough awareness of your body’s posture at any point during the day. In addition, you must have the muscular strength to maintain good posture at all times. For some of us, the lack of awareness, not strength is the reason for poor posture. For others, it is the lack of strength, not so much awareness. For me — both! So, to improve my overall posture I meditate to improve awareness of everything, including my body. I also regularly perform the Slow-Paced Posture Improvement Abs Workout Routine to make sure that I have enough endurance to sit or stand up straight. Not only with the Slow-Paced Posture Improvement Abs Workout Routine help your posture, it will also improve the tone of your abs and back for a tighter waist line.
