sitting can sometimes be healthy

When I started my job, my office was not completely furnished.  I had the nerve-wrecking task of picking out my very own office chair.  It took me a couple of months to decide on one.  I wasn't sure what I wanted until I saw the Gaiam Balance Ball Chair.  My neighbor in the office has one of those elevated desks with a treadmill so she can walk and work at the same time, so I thought I would get something healthy too.  I was a little nervous after reading review upon review that I would have a hard time adjusting to it and that I was investing in something that I would get tired of. has been a month and this is by far the most comfortable office chair I have ever sat in.

I have horrible posture, which has been improving since this bad boy.  You can't see them, but they also come with resistance bands, so when I need to take a step back from the computer, I can work on my upper body strength as well.  I sit up taller, I move around a lot more, and if you buy one of these, they send you information on how to use the chair and the removable balance ball for an entire workout.  Now I literally have no excuse not to workout at the office.  I love my office chair and it is extremely comfortable for someone of my height (5'7").  If you are interested, check out Gaiam and the Balance Ball Chair.
