Combat the Dangers of Sitting

An excellent interview with a young chiropractor who has developed a series of simple exercises any writer can use. Here's the fundamental exercise:



  1. For those of us who sit long hours in front of a monitor, this is excellent information. Time gets away, and suddenly I'm stiff and sore when I try to stand up. I just saw this on another site, too, so thank you for the reminder that I need to take it to heart.

  2. Thanks. This sitting writer has been looking for a good back exercise

  3. This is a good one. Felt good to do it. I like this Saturday series, even if I don't always see it until Sunday. LOL

  4. By Saturday, all I want to do is stretch, and I've been stumbling on these good and simple postures... so I thought, why not share? I'll add one every weekend if I think about it. If you find good ones, you can add some, too.

  5. Really helpful, thanks. I drink a lot of water while writing so that I am forced to get up for a bathroom break. Ha!

  6. Wow, simple and it felt good. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I'm not so sure about that exercise. It seems it would be harmful to the low back, not helpful, putting all that stress in that area.
