    Lol I seriously sit like L from Death Note half the time while on my computer; honestly I sometimes don't even notice I switched to that position until my legs start to hurt.

    My posture's actually pretty good when I'm standing, I've got an over arched back because all through life my back was stronger than my stomach muscles, but other than that I'm good.  I don't stand much though, most of the time I'm sitting or lounging and my sitting posture is atrocious.

    Well, when I'm standing, it kind of depends on how I feel at the particular moment. If I'm sad or depressed, I slouch horribly. If I'm in a decent mood, I think my posture's okay.

    Well, when you're depressed slouching is a given.


    As for me, my posture is most of the time bad. It's actually kinda hard for me to sit up straight and that's pretty bad.

    @yappy Even when I struggled with severe depression, I still had rather excellent posture.

    It's something that must be practiced!  (Also, take breaks every hour... get outside and stretch! Rest your eyes!)

    @Ghost Galaxy I am sorry that had to go through that. But the thing is though is that I don't think most people care to practice. They either naturally do it or someone constantly nags them to sit up straight. Eh, maybe I'm wrong.

    Yapps, you're not wrong! Most people can't be bothered!  But it'll save you years of back pain and a hunched back in the future!

    Practice makes perfect. Don't get me wrong, you'll never see me hit the gym, but I "taught" meself for example to stop walking with my feet spread. Took a year almost, but it worked.


    As a former high end waiter I also worked a lot on my posture, for the looks of it and to preserve my back.


    don't need to exercise much, just be attentive to your posture and do small exercises when you can (used to do discreete butt cheeks clinches while standing still, when watching over my section. You can do that in the subway for example) result now is that while 5 years of office work in a chair have helped distend my belly muscles (and beer too) a bit, I still have the butt of an 18 YO warrior maiden.

    I have a military posture. You can't afford to slouch when you are over 6 feet tall, that translates into giving a warm welcome to back problems, especially when old age occurs.

    I hope it isn't actually military posture, that's too straight.  Removing all curve from your spine takes the spring out.

    It's not too straight yes, I always follow my doctor's advice of course.


    Good thing is that most of my height is in my legs, because we all know that having a longer spine increases the chance of developing bad posture and so back problems too.

    I don't have that much of an horrible posture, but I happen to lean forward a lot, and always look down. Not very convenient for the spine or neck, and I actually suspect a misplaced vein in my back (due to posture, again) to be a reason for some insomnias or bad heart health.

    @Ghost Galaxy For me, it may be more of a please-do-not-look-at-me-I'm-not-that-important kind of thing. And I have the same problem as @Blackyu, which is that I always look down, I have a really hard time meeting people's eyes. Quite weird actually, but despite that, eyes are what I'm best at drawing. I do try to practice, but I normally end up like one of those JRPG portraits that lean so far back they're almost falling over.

    Ah. You guys are gonna have to get over looking at people's eyes! That is how you communicate! Veeeeeerrrrrry offensive to look away when people talk to you! :p

    Anyway, best of luck with this whole thing!

    @sharm Semantics! :p

    But to clarify, I'd say in the USA/Canada, at any rate.  (Most western/modern cultures)
