I’ve acquired a foul behavior of shaking my legs if I’m sitting idle, a lot to absolutely the annoyance of people that sit beside me at film theaters. I can’t assist it, it’s simply one thing I do (I’m doing it proper now as we converse, and I can see my laptop computer display screen swaying forwards and backwards ever so gently). This leg-fidgeting, research say, comes from my being stressed. You see, people weren’t made to sit down for hours at an finish, however the trade has developed in a approach the place machines have interaction in handbook labor and people train their minds whereas sitting nonetheless in a single place… and irrespective of how ergonomic your workplace chair is, posture correction isn’t a alternative for good-old exercise.
