How to look smart and attractive.
1. Why Maintain Good Posture
When you have a chance, take a few moments to look at the people walking- more often than not, sadly- along a busy street. You will see too many people with pot bellies and soft stomachs. You will also see people with hunched backs or arched backs strolling along in an uncaring manner…. Not much to look at.
When you walk, try keeping your head straight, chin high, back straight, stomach in, chest out, and aim high. Some people lose a couple of inches by not walking straight. That’s where hunched backs, and round shoulders come in to. By walking with backs straight, you will not only feel better, but will even feel taller.
2. When To Have Good Posture
Whether you stand, walk, sit or sleep maintain GOOD POSTURE. Do the same at work or at school, where you spend most of your time.
Stand tall all the time. I know that it requires effort; but I also know that in time you will greatly appreciate the benefits of good posture.
3. What is Good Posture
Walk with your head up. Stick out your chest. Pull in your stomach. Throw your shoulders back. Walk with pride and confidence.
And please, don’t drag your feet. Live and walk with enthusiasm.
To improve your stance, look into a mirror to see how best you should stand. Then again, stand with your back to a wall and raise your head and contract your stomach muscles.
4. Dress Well
It is common knowledge that a person who dresses wisely can appear taller than he really is. Here are a few tips:
Don’t neglect the way you dress. Clothing is a reflection of your personality. Dress in an intelligent, sober and harmonious manner. It is always pleasant to look at an elegantly dressed person.
