I don't want to be hunched over by the time I'm 40, but I feel like I'm headed in that direction.
What are some exercises, stretches, or improved habits that I can do on a routine basis in order to strengthen the good-posture muscles and gain the muscle memory to freaking stand up straight?
I won't be purchasing a gym membership and don't want to have to rely on classes, so suggestions for things I can do throughout the day, every day, would be most helpful.
