How can I improve my posture during menopause?

You know you have good posture when you can draw a straight line from your ear through your shoulder, hip and knee. Sucking in your tummy and tucking in your tush on a regular basis will help strengthen your muscles and improve your appearance and mood. Practice good posture when going through menopause.

When standing:
  • Hold your chest high.
  • Keep your shoulders back, relaxed.
  • Suck in your tummy and tush.
  • Keep your feet parallel.
  • Balance your weight evenly on both feet.
When seated:
  • Choose a chair that allows you to rest both feet flat on the floor, keep your knees level with your hips.
  • Sit with your back firmly against the chair. Place a small cushion behind the curve of your lower back, if needed.
  • Keep your shoulders relaxed.
  • Tuck your chin in slightly.
  • Keep your upper back and neck comfortably straight.
