Top 5 Reasons Why Ball Seats are Better than Chairs

Ball Seat

I have to agree with Wendy Bumgardner, a walking expert on About.com – ball seats are so much better than chairs! I often use a 65 cm exercise ball instead of an office chair. Here are the top 5 reasons why balls are way better than chairs:

1. Balls are cheap ($15-30)

2. Balls make you sit actively: work your muscles, move your spine, develop good posture, and improve your balance while sitting

3. Balls allow physical activity and breaks while working (take a 2 minute break to do some crunches, stretches, or pushups)

4. Balls are effective ways of eliminating lower back pain and other discomfort associated with sitting for long periods

5. Balls are fun! Chairs are boring
