Sitting Is Killing You!

Yesterday when I wrote about my  Keister I was really half kidding about how I felt that it was taking on the shape of my chair, but come to find out,sitting is a growing problem. Today my husband shared with me an article that he found on one of his stops. When I finished reading it I told him that I had to share this with you all. Click on any of the images below and it will take you to an enlarged version so that you can read the details.

This article makes me want to invest in a Gaiam Balance Ball chair for my office. Although I'll still be sitting I think I'll feel better about what I'm sitting on.
It will definitely make me sit up straight because I tend to slouch. So unattractive!!If that doesn't work I may have to bring in my cruiser and pedal my way to better health.

  1. Both Larry and I have standing desks. They are good because they keep you moving all the time. I just switched to standing a couple months ago; prior to that I sat on an exercise ball for at least the last 7 years; it's great; try the ball alone, you don't need a big fancy holder for it, you get more exercise when you use your own muscles to sit up. ;-)
