In brief: Posture

Teaching your body to sit, stand and walk straight will require great memory work and outside reminders from a mate, friend or family member. It will be a tough job to remind yourself initially but you'll be very grateful in the end.
Duration? About 6 months to a year. Upper body work-outs and healthy eating habits will greatly help. Consult a trainer at a local gym for the proper exercises.
