Easy and Brilliant Ways To Get a Great Posture

Written by Dr. Veena Madhankumar and medically reviewed by iCliniq medical review team

Great posture is something everyone desires, but few are able to achieve. Here are some tips that can correct your posture, if followed on a regular basis.


Follow a workout regime

A 20-minute jog every day, followed by basic stretching can maintain your posture. Do not overstrain yourself; this might lead to further problems.

Organize your workplace


If you are in a desk job, make sure your workspace is comfortable. Your chair and your table must be arranged in such a way that they do not affect your back.

Learn how to breathe properly

You can breathe more easily using your diaphragm. Make sure you sit or stand in the right posture, providing a comfortable space for your diaphragm to do its job.

Watch your posture at all times

Maintaining the proper posture while sleeping or driving is as important as walking in a proper posture. Choose the proper pillow and make the right adjustments in your driving seat.

Sit with your back at a 135-degree angle

At this angle, your back is more relaxed. It creates less strain on your back, keeping your posture straight.

Hold your phone correctly

Stooping down to use your mobile phone or your laptop is bad for your neck. Make sure your laptop screen or your mobile screen are at the right angle, where you do not have to bend your neck.

Learn the proper posture

While standing do not stoop, Keep your foot at shoulder width, your back & hip straight, while your shoulder is a little bent towards the back. This is the exact posture, where your spine works at optimum capacity.
