Book balancing . . . doesn't seem to lead to particularly good posture, actually.

Posture

I feel like talking about “Posture” is a bit prim and old-fashioned, like “Let’s all go to finishing school and work on our hope chests and wait for gentlemen callers,” you know?  Plus we’re all bent over computers and smartphones and co-sleeping with our laptops anyway, so why fight the inevitable?  Well, for a couple […] Read more…
