Since we were little our parents told us to stop slouching, or sit straight, or stand taller!
But does this correct your actual posture?
Actually, no it does not!
How many times have you sucked your stomach in?
Let’s say you saw someone with a stomach that bulged out a bit and you asked them to suck it in, their belly would then “appear “flat!
This is the same person with the photo’s taken 5 seconds apart.
But that wouldn’t really be a flat stomach now would it. They are just sucking it in, and when they get tired or forget to “hold in” their stomach, it would bulge out again.
Well it’s just the same for posture. Sure you can remember to stand tall and push your shoulders back, and your chest out, but just like holding in your stomach, it’s not a real correction for your posture, and of course once you forget to “hold” yourself up, or you get tired, your bad posture comes back!

This is the posture people see most of the time! This sends a strong negative message about you to your colleagues. Your boss, peers and friends read your body language as an indicator of your attitude.
This is her holding herself up. A positive posture reflects a positive attitude and it is possible to maintain IF your “posture centres” are activated throughout the day.
YOUR POSTURE CONTROL CENTRE!
Most functions of your body are run automatically, your heart beats, your diaphragm contracts, your sandwich at lunch gets digested, all without you thinking about it!
Well the same thing is supposed to happen with your posture. Great posture is supposed to be automatic and always working!
And the organ most responsible for running your body functions on automatic?
You guessed it the brain!
Babies and toddlers do not need to be reminded to have great posture – its natural and automatic!
This is because they have not had their posture centres switched off yet!
SWITCHING OF THE POSTURE CENTRE
So why is posture not automatic in people!
Well, sitting switches it off!
We evolved as hunter gatherers – which meant we adapted to an environment where we were always moving.
But in modern day society we do not move very much, and just sit all day. Sitting powerfully turns off the posture centres in our brain!
Further to this our heads are often held in the down position such as when using the computer and of course texting, which further turns of the Posture Centres in your brain!
