Good posture not only enhances our overall personality but is also vital for our health in the long term. For example, slouching or droopy shoulders put excessive pressure on diaphragm muscles, leading  to less oxygen intake & resulting in fatigue as well as poor blood & air circulation in  the body. Bad posture also increases the chances of injuring our muscles and causing aches in the back, joints and more.
