Well it’s one thing she was wrong about…seems it is better to slouch – to a degree – actually to about 135 degrees. Saw this article when slouching at the computer – and I had to laugh…guess it’s why my back is fine…
And maybe it is why we see beach chairs as so relaxing?
It probably is not a good thing to constantly be slouched, no mater to what degree – getting up and moving around and varying the degree of “slouchiness” is likely to be better….moving usually beats sitting for long stretches.
So sorry mom – you were wrong and I am glad this is not one myth I passed on to my son..
