Two words, good posture. Stop. Did you just do what I think you did? Did you just sit up a little straighter? Next time you walk into the elevator or a big meeting, think about what your posture says about you as you pass through those doors. Then try these exercises for better posture.

No matter what, I will carve out this time to make sure this becomes a ritual in my […]
