My Mother had an irritating habit of tapping me on the shoulder when I was a teenager saying, “Don’t slouch, sit up straight!”
Thanks Mum. Irritating and embarrassing at time though it was, I now have pretty good posture – as do all the women in our family. I know when I do fall into a ‘slovenly’ slouch, I definitely don’t look or feel my best.
And Helen Mirren’s regal bearing is testament to how standing tall and proud, with tummy in, chest out, tucked bottom and, importantly, chin up for that swanlike neck, can make you look and feel 10 years younger.
It’s quite a military approach to ‘inner beauty’ so get ready girls…’Attention ‘Shun’ 🙂
