Tip of the Week As the dangers of prolonged sitting are becoming clearer, more people are choosing to swap their traditional seat for a stability ball. You dont have to permanently say sayonara to your desk chair, but using a stability ball for half the day is better for your body. Some benefits are: Stronger core – By sitting on the ball, you are forced to use the muscles in the middle of your body: the abdominals, hips, chest and spine. Better balance: The first time you sit on the ball, you might feel a little wobbly. Youll definitely become more aware of firing your core muscles to stay steady. But with time and practice, your body will unconsciously balance. Posture – With no armrests or chair back to slouch into, youre naturally going to keep your back straighter and taller. Also, your posture will naturally benefit from the stronger core muscles gained from the ball.
