2. Chin and Head Position

In addition to being mindful of the torso and below, maintaining correct standing posture also means paying attention to the chin, head, and neck position. The head should remain level at all times. At no point should a person be shifting their head forward, backward, or to the side. The earlobes should remain in line with the shoulders.
