Fidget Jan 9, 2014

I have been working as a translator for thirty years, sitting in front of the computer most of the time. I had a thorough health check about a year ago and my back was found to be in very good condition. When I asked why, the nurse/assistant or whatever said I fidget a lot - I keep changing position on my chair. So: there's the answer: FIDGET!!!

An alternative for those who don't fidget is... Jan 9, 2014 work standing on your head or laying on your sideicon_rolleyes.gif (synchronising the position of the computer with respect to yours).

Chair is our enemy. Bed is not.icon_biggrin.gif
