How Can I Improve My Posture?

Adjust it so if fits you. Try to always sit in it so that it supports you - when you sit upright in the chair, the chair back should be supporting some of your weight. My wife and I were recently at staples, looking for a new chair for her. Of all the chairs there, two had good support, and those weren't as adjustable as I'd have liked (I couldn't get either to fit her properly). We ended up going to a used office furniture place.

What It Takes to Form a Good Habit

There is satisfaction and joy in accomplishing the task, but that's where accountability buddy is a misnomer. All habits of any sort will trip, falter, fail, etc. It's all about getting back in the game. People who falter in quitting smoking, depression, learning a new skill, taking up exercise or learning a new habit need a buddy who they enjoy doing it with and will help them get back in the game.
