How to get a Slender Neck and Shoulder Line?


On average, we spend 2 hours and 55 minutes looking at our smartphones. Therefore, if the head moves forward while the shoulders are rounded, our posture can change. This can lead to unexpected health problems such as heartburn and incontinence.

At Bright Side, we understand the importance of good posture and wanted to show you some simple exercises you can practice at home.
