Don’t sit up straight at your desk

Going in a slightly different direction than a previous post on “The downside to being in IT”, I saw a post by Michael Hyatt (Blog|Twitter) recently that had an infographic about why sitting down so much is killing  us. The biggest part about the graph for me was sitting at a reclined angle was actually less strain on  your back than sitting upright.  I guess you could argue that sitting that far back is going to put more strain on your eyes, neck, and other important body parts so maybe it’s a wash. I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you do to help your body handle all this “desk stress” that we put on it in the office.

    Very good entry. Not only sitting, the human body is designed to be in constant movement.
