The main problem is probably from to much practice sitting down.
Considering you're going to be standing up ( most of the time) when performing, definately spend some time standing up during your practice routine.
But like Pedja said make sure your guitar is in a comfortable position for standing up. To avoid injury to your left hand.
You can avoid this by going for a higher strap setting rather than the low one.

When learning a new song I sit down, otherwise I always stand while practising. As soon as I know what notes to play I never sit.
