What is the best posture for SITTING?
With more and more people working from home this is more relevant than ever.
The old fashioned view was that we had to sit perfectly straight, with everything in line.
This makes sense. But in fact is not supported by research at all.
Time after time, research comes back showing that there's very little association between how you sit and the pain you experience.
**The truth is that there is no one perfect way to sit**
Slouching is OK
Sitting with your head forwards is OK
Sitting with crossed legs is OK
So instead of focusing on how you're sitting, just try to change it up.
Change your posture. Get up every so often. And make sure you inject some exercise into your day.
Key takeaway: If you get sore sitting, simply change up your posture
