    New research indicates that people should vary their posture throughout the day. Standing all day is no better than sitting all day.

    Exactly. A recliner is far healthier than a straight backed chair with your feet on the ground. So sit in a recliner, moving a bit while you are sitting. Get up and move around once in awhile.

    Some tasks are best done while sitting. Standing uses part of your brain's processing power.

    I can believe that. When I worked as a field service technician and electrical designer and was troubleshooting a PLC program, I found that I was far more successful while sitting than standing. It was easier to think and keep my brain on task.

    Yes, I also like to sit when doing brain work.

    Do you suppose that is proof that we don't sit on our brains as some might think? :wink
