Probably the best examples of good posture are those shown by young children, whose natural activities clearly demonstrate that most of them have excellent posture. For example, think about how a young child watches television. Invariably they will sit on the floor completely upright and with a straight back. However, if you ask adults to adopt the same position, most will begin to fatigue within a minute, and may end up slouching forwards and supporting their weight on their knees. The reason for this is that adults usually sit down on soft, inviting sofas – a seated position that requires no effort from the back, abdominal or core muscles. If the muscles aren’t used, they will lose condition via the ‘use it or lose it’ principle.
