3. Walk like a Model
You never see a model slouching down the runway. Keep your shoulders back, chest out and head up. Let your arms fall gently to your side. When you walk pretend you’re strutting down a runway, confident, elegant, ready to be photographed at a moments notice. You’ll find that if you keep this thought in the back of your mind you’ll naturally walk with more confidence and grace.

5. Stay Flexible
By stretching and staying flexible you’re relieving your muscles from any undue stress and strain. By having loose and free muscles your body naturally flows better. Particularly your neck and shoulders make a difference as being tense in these areas can cause you to hunch and slouch.
