Chiropractic Woodbury MN Posture Affects

You can tell a lot about a person just by looking at their posture in Woodbury MN. We have all come across a person who is confident and resilient. That person stands up tall, chest out, shoulders down and head held high. In the eyes of body language we perceive this person as a successful person. Someone who takes initiative and responsibility and acts with integrity. When we see someone with this posture we associate them as being more handsome or beautiful, confident, powerful, and holding authority.

Bad Posture in Woodbury MN

We have also encountered the person who is the victim of bad posture. Demonstrated by rounded shoulders, caved in chest and curved forward and hanging head posture. Whether you are or not you are giving off the signals that you are weak, inadequate, cowardly, timid or incompetent.

People buy with their eyes. 90% of what we buy is seeing the rest is through our other senses, what we hear, smell and touch. How do you want to be perceived? Are you looking for that promotion? Trying to sell a house or a product? People associate confidence with trust and weakness with uncertainty.

Work on changing your posture to what you want and see the difference in the way that people treat you. Sit up straight. Stretch out your pectoralis muscles and strengthen your back muscles. Many of us sit at a desk most of the day which can create bad habits.
