Don’t Sit Up Straight

Ever wonder why bosses pickup the habit of leaning back on his cozy-leather chair? Because they work extra long hours and it feels good.

This article isn’t actually new. I got this way back in 2006, so I thought I might share it with you.

Dont Sit Up Right

Sitting up straight is not the best position for office workers, a study has suggested.

Scottish and Canadian researchers used a new form of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to show it places an unnecessary strain on your back.

They told the Radiological Society of North America that the best position in which to sit at your desk is leaning slightly back, at about 135 degrees.ย  [Source]

Lucky me, I can lie in bed while working (often doze off).

ps: Eddie, WORK! Don’t fool around!

pss: IJN mandated to Sime Darby. Good move?

  1. lol good info!

  2. Less than 70?! Very very blind! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Get a bigger screen

  3. err..less than 70 degree is considered blind?? ayyakss..skrin pc dah cukup besar ๐Ÿ˜•

  4. i got back pain and the doc said ‘sit straight’….huhuhu
    i guess he did’t get the memo~~~~ ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿ˜Ž

  5. Nanti suruh doc tu read NH ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Hohoho ๐Ÿ˜€

    Its just that when u sit straight and bring closer your stuffs (less than 30 cm in distance), it will hurt your shoulder. Then the pain irradiates downwards to your back. That what we normally do. Being too nerdy, kan? Hehe.

    I bet NH would laugh reading my lines.
    And he knows why ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Thats why u cant. Juling mata, cramp bahu, sakit belakang ๐Ÿ™„

    u’re a boss yourself. So act like one. Leaning back on your comfy chair regularly ๐Ÿ˜‰ It saves your back huh? Hehe.

  8. No, like I said, I lie down and doze off. Work aside. LoL ๐Ÿ™„

  9. Typical sea lion. ๐Ÿ˜›

    *lariiiii

  10. pss: IJN mandated to Sime Darby. Good move?

    Not for me. Even now IJN cost u RM ribu-ribu*, kalau swasta, maka ramailah yang bedah sendiri kot sbb tak mampu nak bayar.. :down:

  11. “Lucky me, I can lie in bed while working (often doze off)”

    ps: as a modern slave, i don’t have that luxury.
    pss: are u busy dude?
    psss: jom melebam mlm ni. i need some good conversation to ease my pain.

  12. patutlah bosses sumer perut boroi, duduk menyandar je. huhu!

  13. bedah sendiri, how cute? Tapi as I’ve heard dia nak kekalkan that charityยฒ thingy.

  14. lebih baik bukak satu macam IJN tapi swasta senang org tau yg ni swasta.Sape kaya dia pegi situ senang bukan.Buat aper nak kacau yg sedia ada. Suka hati je nak tukar2 kan cahaya. โžก

  15. So aku ada chance jd bos la nih, sbb perut aku boroi.. ๐Ÿ˜†

  16. Sit straight, does look nerdy LOL!

  17. Baron Ergonomic Mesh Chair is yet the best for working long hours. :up:

    Dem. It’s expensive. Huhu~ ๐Ÿ™„

  18. Ah nice. Sandar seats so much more comfortable.

    Cept that i’ve fallen asleep because it was too comfortable ๐Ÿ™„

  19. my chair would not tilt to 135…. how la?

  20. tilt more than 90 degree is okay enough..not necessarily 130..hehe..

  21. tersengih aku baca komen dak cahaya ni ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. this is not for real right? lolx

  23. Tonight I have plans. Will text you later.

  24. Like in the school days, tilt (jengket) your chair . Just don’t fall ok ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

  25. 3 situasi,

    aku terlalu ke depan dan mata rosak. jumpe doktor dan diperiksa mataku

    aku duduk tegak dan terlalu stress tulang belakang, ada doktor boleh memeriksa dan memicit mana perlu

    bersandar ke belakang lalu terlentang, patah? ada doktor juga boleh tengokkan.

    hehehehe…

    oit ed. tengok ‘bilik sulit’ jom!

  26. there is a joke told by my Sr GM

    2 requirements if u wanna be a manager:

    1. pot-bellied
    2. bald-headed

    ps: I have none. cisss…

  27. u should change “r u blind” to “watching porn” sitting style…hahaha ๐Ÿ˜›

    aku pon duduk kurang dr 70ยฐ wpun monitor besar,tapi aku rasa semua org mcm tu sbb senang nk taip/guna mouse…

    ah..i really need to work on my posture..a bit “hunchback-of-notre-dame”..heh

  28. aku cadangkn posisi ke 4. Tarik monitor gi bawah meje, pastu ko meniarap. Tp jgn dekat sgt, nanti rabun.

    Agak2 dah lenguh, ngiringkan badan. Jgn lupe ngiringkan sekali monitor.

  29. who have a big pot-bellied, berdiri tegak dan tunduk kebawah, did u see your ** pasti tidak.. muahaaa โžก

  30. aku kalo dalam kelas duduk style 135 tu….hehehe selesa skit….

  31. Mine is 180 ahhahah! Meniarap ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

  32. Wait.. Meniarap masa study kat bilik la if dalam kelas 45, tak pun 30.. dengan muka menekup meja.. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  33. me,during classes its either less than 70 (tido) or 135 (tido or melangut) ๐Ÿ™„
    180 tu best kalu nak belajar and sambung tido dengan lena trus ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  34. haha.
    ku pikirkan,
    duduk straight tuh smart.
    rupanya bwk masalh yea?
    ๐Ÿ™„

  35. haha.

    lps tuh mesti ckgu akan soh jwb soklam.
    dia kata,sbb nmpak sure sngt ko taw apa yg diajar.
    based on ur cara duduk.
    kah.

  36. I’m in my comfortable position (120 deg je) dan bila pada 135 deg, I work sub-consciously.. LOL.

  37. my mum always scold me when im in the “GOOD” position..
    she said i will get a backache if i not sit straight
