I slouch a lot, so my shoulders are a bit rounded at my neutral posture. I have tried to get into the habit of doing wall glides, stretching my chest, doing back exercises, and sitting properly. But after quite a few years of testing strategies, tools, and trying to build consistent habits, I usually manage to get two or three weeks of good progress but then fall back to the usual bad habits and my posture does not really improve.

Do any of you have any success stories about correcting your bad posture? I would like to learn from your success!

I agree with the previous comment. Also, lying on your bed on your back, allow your head to hang off the edge. You should feel a stretch all the way from your neck down your spine. A massage therapist told me this is good for stretching because I work at a computer all day.

That’s really good advice it helps me a lot
