Back problems? Sitting up straight may be bad for you....

Barbara Prashnig, the creator of Working Style Analysis (WSA) now has scientific proof that sitting up straight may be bad for you. In her book, “The Power of Diversity”, Barbara shot down many myths, among them the belief that you concentrate better when sitting upright. “Many human beings perform better in an informal environment,” says Barbara. “When someone sits on a hard chair, approximately 75% of the total body weight is supported by only 10 square centimetres of bone. The resulting stress often causes fatigue, discomfort and lack of concentration.”

If you experience back pain, please have a look at for more scientific explanations.

If you’re not sure whether a formal or an informal environment is good for your personal Working Style, please visit us on for your chance to win a WSA assessment.

Do you know what else might be causing stress or a performance drop at work? Do your WSA today and find out whether it’s the lighting at the office that’s making you irritable and tired.

A few years ago i was hit by a car and injured my back this caused me so much pain it was ruining my life and then i tried one of those mattresses that mould to your body shape and adjust to your weight and i slept great for the first time in months and woke with no pain at all! You should try it!
