No, this is not an article about the pros and cons of the position you take while writing; but as a writer, I am fully aware that my job is mostly a sitting one… it’s hard to walk around writing or typing and not fall down the stairs. But there are a lot of pseudo-scientific articles circulating recently about how sitting is the worst thing for your body. I have news for you: Stress about worrying if you’re sitting too much is far worse for your body than your actual physical posture. Sit comfortably, sit straight and relaxed, and write creatively; take occasional breaks by getting up, moving around, stretching, and getting a hot cup of tea for the next round of writing!

Love this! Will have to share this with my co-workers as we are all editors/proofers in my office.
Thanks! Yep, writers, proofers, editors… any job that requires brain concentration seems to require sitting still for long periods of time! It’s good to get up and move around occasionally, but also to take the pseudo-science with a pinch of salt. 😉
