The Whole article in this weeks Independent reads as follows

The Core Health Essentials to Health
With Matthew Bateman (Doctor of Chiropractic)
Can your posture improve your business?
A tall, authoritative and decisive YES is the answer. Good posture can help you in physiological and psychological ways. It can help you breathe more efficiently allowing oxygen to get to the brain and other organs. It can help the spinal cord communicate with your whole body better. But the most interesting aspect is that in the business world good posture is seen to portray confidence, strength and command of the situation.

Everybody knows that posture is important physiologically. Good posture places your bodyweight in the best position for your muscles and joints to hold you upright against gravity. We know that having your ear, hip and ankle inline helps you hold a good balanced posture. Good posture is seen to also reduce the levels of cortisol in the blood which can in turn reduce stress.

Good posture can affect physical and chemical aspects of your health. However it is interesting how good posture affects non-verbal communication. If we look down and allow our shoulders to hunch upwards then we appear less confident in our communication. When we drop our shoulder blades backwards and downwards our chest comes up and forwards naturally portraying confidence. When forced by simply puffing up your chest, the onlooker can subconsciously identify this as a show and not believe your confidence. Good posture is something you do and not something you have. Hence natural posture which is practiced and adopted as normal movement patterns will be authentic within your body language.

Everybody’s posture is different however good physical exercise including core stability, upper and mid-back strengthening with advice from physical therapists if needed can help develop a better natural posture to help your physiological and psychological health.
