Are you also fed up of all this ergonomic talk going on?
Do you also take a lot of your time thinking on these questions?
What is the proper way to sit?
How should I sit?
Why does it hurt to sit up straight?
How should I sit to avoid back pain?
Or are you someone in his 40s who thinks why is he having such backpain while he works in office for so long?
The answer to your questions lies in this guide I am going to write here. “The perfect sitting posture guide for everyone”.
I am just the same as you. An in-house freelancer that needs to keep his ass at a wooden chair for at least 6 hours while I always thought I would be better in a high chair for babies!
My boss is rather more selective and elite in his nature so for this reason, he has a Herman miller Mirra 2 office chair for himself that lets him stroll for whatever an hour or two he likes to be in his office.
So, without further ado, let’s start this great ergonomic guide of ours!
Sitting is just as technical:
You would be wondering why? Let me hire a doctor for you and he will tell you with angles in precise measurements why you aren’t sitting in the right way. Not even this, he can even follow you all over your day and can guide you about sitting postures while you eat, work or even shit!
Yes, a sitting posture recommended by doctors for sitting for shitting!
Pew! This is as gross as I could ever have thought of it. Instead of thinking about getting rid of all the waste in you, you would be thinking if your legs are at 25 degrees to the seat? And as you would have known what a dirty mind I have, if I had constipation issues, I would reply as such to the doctor!
“Who gives a damn even to how I sit while I shit!”
Sitting is boring too!
How can you sit at a place for even a minute when you haven’t seen the beauties of the world yet? I mean I would run all across my office out to the street just to see a maiden who makes my heart go merry-go-round! I don’t know if there is anything as boring as sitting at a place and seeing what others are doing. You can only like this pastime if you are actually someone who has nothing to do in his life!
General guidelines for sitting properly:
The seriousness with which you have read my words till now has urged me to believe that you have some serious issues with sitting and you really wish to know “How to sit”.
Here we go then. I have copied some guidelines from other bloggers and listed them for you. Ethically it isn’t good but for the sake of my satisfaction. I can say that I have cut the shit to a level that’s just bearable.
- When you sit on a chair in your office, make sure you push your hips as back as you can. If it’s a stool, I prefer you let go of this advice.
- Make sure your keep shoulders pushed back while sitting and your back is just straight. I still insist that sitting with a recline is a better choice just in case you can afford lying in your bed for a few extra years.
- Make sure the seat is just as high above the ground that it suits your body.
- Do take breaks while you sit. Walk a few paces when you feel tired. Remember, just a few paces. If you walk more, you will walk outside your office and that too for never to be returned.
It doesn’t matter if you have serious back pain issues or what. This guide on sitting (thank God I didn’t type shitting) will make sure that you sit in the right posture for periods much longer than you wish without any pain.
