How to Sit Correctly with Good Posture So You Don't Kill Yourself

Are standing desks last year's advice? Whatever. Unless you're lucky enough to be on your feet all day for work, you probably sit too much. We all do. When we go home, we sit on the couch. When we have dinner, we sit on a chair. When we watch a movie, we sit in the theater. When we go out, we sit on a stool. Our life is filled with sitting interrupted by little moments of walking so it's important to, well, be good at sitting. This animation video shows you the correct posture.

I came here not to watch the video nor read the article but only to say, "Too late!"

I've had bad posture for a long time and now it's too late to fix it. Sitting properly is painful for me after a while. Maybe it always has been and that's why I have bad posture. I don't know.

Anyhow, take a lesson from my experience, kids. Don't ever sit and you'll be just fine.
