What do you sit on?

Before submitting the obvious anatomical answer, I really want to see if there are any writers out there who exercise at their desk whilst writing and if so, what do they do? I ask because I have just seen a newspaper article showing a woman walking on a treadmill adjacent to her raised desk, which she uses to get her daily exercise whilst still working at her PC.

I am aware of some writers who have used exercise balls to sit on. Is there a majority consensus – ball or treadmill/exercise bike?

Me? I just have a boring old chair and occasionally shuffle my feet once my legs go numb.

    I don’t think I could be on a treadmill and write, an exercise bike, maybe. Personally, I walk around the block once a day and twice on the weekends.


  2. I don’t exercise at my desk but from time to time I swap the mouse to my left hand – otherwise my wrist and shoulder ache.

    Wow that is dedication to write whilst treadmilling! I lounge on my sofa and write. Not the most ergonomic, but comfortable 🙂
