sitting straight up is more tiring than leaning back. Our office has trouble with poor desk design. Of course they got a cheap deal on the desks, now half the staff have neck back and shoulders issues. What possessed them to buy such poorly designed desks! I spend part of my weekend going from one therapist to another. RMT, physio, chiro, acupuncture. Whoever I can get into, who can help loosen up the tightness. The desk is designed in such a a way that you tend to hunch your shoulders, no matter how you adjust your chair or your desktop items. I actually have a pretty good chair. But getting tired of twisting my body to fit the desk.

glad I walked from that mess and into the garden of life. I spend my days helping others and enjoying nature so much happier this way.
