A recent study shows that it’s better to lean back than to sit up straight. Apparently, it puts less stress on the back. However, that doesn’t mean that you can slouch– that’s even worse than sitting up straight. I guess this will change the whole field of ergonomics. New chairs will have to be created. Of course, then you’ll end up with neck strain from pushing your neck forward while you’re leaning back. Maybe we should all save ourselves a lot of trouble and not spend so much time sitting.
