Re: What Does Everybody Sit On?

I like to lean back in my computer chair when I'm on the computer. I do have a swiss ball to try out.

When watching tv/movies, I either sit in a straddle, kneel in some fashion ( on my haunches, one knee or some other fashion ). If I'm on a couch or laying down, it's only a matter of time before I'm asleep.

Re: What Does Everybody Sit On?

If I'm tired and I have a lot to read (law student) then I switch from a normal chair to a big Swiss Ball. At least then if I fall asleep I won't be out for too long as I will end up falling off of it. Then again I'm in third year now so that ball hasn't seen much action lately.

I'm surprised that more work places (especially those with salaried employees) don't have couches or other easy-to-access nap space. Granted, nobody wants employees sleeping while on the job, but sometimes there can be a big productivity advantage if the employee has a chance to clock out for an hour to grab a quick nap and then come back to work.

Re: What Does Everybody Sit On?

I'm lucky enough to be in a position with an office where I had them buy me a bar table. I spend half the day at my normal desk and half the day standing at that table with my laptop which has really helped my back not get as sore as it used to. I don't think I could stand there all day long though.

Now if I could just get them to allow me to have a beer or two I'd really have something going.

Re: What Does Everybody Sit On?

i have a swopper chair. my wife is an interior designer and got it for me. i absolutely love it more than any other chair i've ever had. it's like a swiss ball but it looks like a stool. everybody gets a kick out of it and asks questions, makes dumb comments, then tries it out. after trying it out they want one.

Re: What Does Everybody Sit On?

Swiss ball references make me think of Dwight on "The Office"....

Re: What Does Everybody Sit On?

At home I use a kneeling chair at the computer to ensure good posture.

i forgot to mention something that the article does. this chair keeps me moving around all day long. i kind of bounce around on it, lean over to the sides, etc. my back really used to hurt from sitting in a chair all day, but now it never bothers me.

Re: What Does Everybody Sit On?

In season: One of these.

Although I think I can treat my rear end better and I want to try one of these:

In the off-season I sit on one of these a little.

I sit on one of these every now and then (with way less loading)
