Why Posture Matters
Some Benefits of Posture Improvement
Poor posture negatively affects your overall appearance, and can lead to back problems. The PostureNOW posture corrector will help you reverse a lifetime of bad posture.
Here are some interesting quotes from various sources about the importance of good posture:
"Strong, solid posture is the backbone of feeling good and staying active"
"[with good posture] you can actually look leaner, taller, and considerably more confident."
"Over time, your poor posture takes a tremendous toll on your spine, shoulders, hips and knees."
-Men's Health Magazine
"Slumping posture can zap energy and make you look heavier, not to mention cause back pain and neck problems."
Today, people are spending hours a day at their computer, hunched over with their spine health worstening day after day. And with the advent of social media (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.), people are spending more time at their home computers, with the result being literally 10-15 hours a day spent in poor posture. As people become more and more aware of their (and others') posture, we're realizing that good posture can make us look better and feel better. But realizing there is a problem is only the first step.
Traditionally, the only solutions for better posture have been time-consuming exercises and uncomfortable, difficult-to-use products. And the hidden danger with using a traditional posture corrective brace is that the brace itself does all the work for you, pulling your shoulders back while putting your body into correct alignment. The problem with this model is that it can actually weaken your back muscles and make your posture worse over time.
The PostureNOW brace is the newest, most innovative way to improve your posture. Its comfortable neoprene arm bands, coupled with a flexable elastic strap across the back, help you hold your shoulders back and provide tension when you start to slouch. But it's your back muscles, not the device itself, that keep you in correct posture. And that is the PostureNOW difference: You become stronger over time, and as you are trained to stand straighter, you'll need to use PostureNOW less and less, because you'll naturally have better posture and a stronger upper back. PostureNOW is the ultimate long-term posture corrector--not a quick-fix or gimmick.
Here are some quotes from famous people pertaining to posture:
I want to get old gracefully. I want to have good posture, I want to be healthy and be an example to my children.
Do not lose your knowledge that man's proper estate is an upright posture, an intransigent mind and a step that travels unlimited roads
There is so much to gain from improving your posture. Everybody's interested in the way they look, and then they're astounded to find the other benefits.
I wanted to draw attention to the person, the face and hands, and how he's holding himself. You can tell a lot about what a person is like by their posture, how they stand, sit and carry themselves.
Keep your head up and don't let anything get to you. Always keep good posture.
-Dante Bichette Jr
When we got the second goal that late in the game, I could tell by the other team's posture that we had this game won. As long as we didn't make any big mistakes, I knew it was over.
Unless some misfortune has made it impossible, everyone can have good posture.
