Getting ahead in your career can be greatly influenced by your posture and for your self-esteem. Good posture makes you feel more confident and other people can pick up on that. So sit up straight and walk tall!
In simple terms, posture breeds empowerment, Galinsky said.
Timea Wharton, owner of Turning Point Fitness, a Toronto fitness studio, believes proper posture is not only important for overall physical health but also for mental and emotional well-being.
Wharton, who teaches proper posture in her yoga, Pilates and dance classes, found that when she was going for job interviews, potential employers commented on how good her posture was.
“Posture creates confidence, projects success. . . If you’re slouching, it shows you are insecure, unsure,” Wharton told the Star.
“Posture does make a difference. How you sit and how you stand will have an affect on how you are perceived.”
