The position in which you hold your body upright against gravity while sitting, laying down or standing is known as posture. To achieve good posture, you have to train your body to walk, stand, sit and lie in a position that places least strain on the ligaments and supporting muscles. Acquiring good posture involves learning new movements and positions as well as changing some life habits.
