Are You A Slouch At Work? Find Out Here [INFOGRAPHIC]

Being a kid was quite a drag, especially when I’d glance across the dinner table and see my dad abruptly straighten his back, signaling me to “sit up straight” for the umpteenth time in my life. No one is around to call me out on my bad posture these days, but thankfully the infographic below, which was created by Voltier Digital, details how a person can check whether he is taking good care of his back.
The first part of the test is to place the back of one’s head up against a wall. Your heels have to be six inches from the wall as well, and there should be less than two inches between your neck or the small of your back and the wall. Get some measuring tape to see where you stand (pun intended. You’re welcome), and if you’re unhappy with the results, fret not. The infographic also lists ways to improve your posture when sitting, walking, standing, running, and sleeping. Take a look at the full graphic below and see whether you’re standing tall and proud or giving Quasimodo a run for his money.
