POSTURE TIP #17 ACTIVE SITTING
SWAP YOUR CHAIR WITH AN EXERCISE BALL Sitting on a ball requires using muscles to balance and control your body. When first getting used to sitting on a ball, it’s important to focus on good postural alignment, keeping your head aligned over your upper body and hips. This trains deep core muscles to stabilise posture in a more vertical muscle pattern. As muscles strengthen, you’ll find it takes less energy to maintain good posture.
Get a large, anti-burst exercise ball and use it as your office chair for a few minutes to a few hours a day.
Start for short periods, and extend the amount of time you sit on the ball as you become more comfortable.
