This is a very common question I get regarding posture. The best solution I can offer is a postural restoration exercise called wall angels. You can look them up on YouTube and you will see how simple yet effective they are. They basically retrain your postural support muscles to help you upright yourself over time. Posture is lost over time and has to be retrained and regained over time. Do them consistently and you will see results.

Postural problems may be as simple as a bad habit, but could also be from a structural problem. If a bad posture habit isn’t corrected, it can become a structural problem. It would be a really good idea to have a chiropractic check-up to see if you need structural correction. Gentle chiropractic adjustments can start you toward better posture and a happier husband!
At home, you can pay attention to your posture and sit up straight when you notice yourself slouching, stretch into a corner or doorframe, lay on a foam roller, etc. Unfortunately, there is no magic wand, and your participation will be critical to your posture success.
Best of health,
