If You Have to Sit, Sit Up Straight

Snapshot of part of a piece of the Washington Post
infographic. Be sure to check out the full thing.
I just learned that May is National Correct Posture Month, so I figured I better dust off this half written post and get it done. I was originally inspired to share The Health Hazards of Sitting infographic that ran in the Washington Post last January. There has been a lot written about the hazards of sitting. Heck, I've written a lot about the hazards of sitting:
There is lots of agreement that sitting is bad. However, some of us are stuck sitting most of the work day, so maybe we should concentrate on improving our posture. 
I had sworn I wasn't buying any gadgets for a while, but I couldn't resist preordering the new Lumo Lift after reading that article in the Post. It's supposed to be released this summer and I'm psyched to try it. 

I learned about May being National Correct Posture Month from this campaign being conducted by BackJoy. If you're one of the first 500 people to take their pledge, they'll send you a Sit Smart thingy for free.
