The word 'Sitting' in my question refers to Sitting on the chair or any other raised surface and not the floor. When Sitting on the chair, our buttocks are nearly always rested on chair. However, there are many differences in how one can hold one's legs. For me, when I sit on a chair, I usually cross my legs at the ankles or just place my legs together. When I am home, feeling relaxed, I sit with my legs open (not very open, just slightly). Sometimes, I raise both my legs up and rest them on the chair, sitting cross-legged. To some people, that may be un-lady like but to me, it's a comfortable way of sitting. How about you? How do you Sit on a chair?

Hmm.... I never really gave much thought to how I sit actually. Most of the time I am slouching on the chair. With my legs crossed at the ankles. If I am sitting upright, the legs will still be crossed at the ankles. But it could either be stretched out, or tucked under the chair. Otherwise, it is always the slouching position. Heh heh... lazy bag of bones is like that one.

Noted. That is what my mum is always telling me. Now it is my wife's turn to keep reminding me not to slouch too much. Heh heh...

Anyhow lol. If possible, I try to see without crossing/folding my legs. But usually, I will end up doing that and switching the direction continuously. It is so hard to sit!

Yea. I heard it's bad for the hips to sit crossed. I tried not to sit crossed too but it's just so hard.

At church or other formal places I sit with my ankles crossed. At home I'm either sitting with one foot tucked under me or sitting backwards in a chair leaning over the back.

Well, to be honest, I haven't paid much attention to how I sit on a chai. But I guesss I sit like you most of the ime. Only I sut with my legs crossed, not just my feet. That is ho I am sitting right now, in front of my computer with my legs crossed at my knees. When I sit on the couch I usually have my feet and legs up, on the coffee table. Or I am laying down on the couch when I am watching TV and I am by myself.

In secretarial studies they teach you that your back is to be straight and the foot plant firm on the ground. This is the most uncomfortable sitting in life. I will sit with my foot cross at the ankle. While at home I will mostly laid down. Right now one foot is on the bed and my other foot on the ground while the laptop is on the foot that is on the bed. I am comfortable this way.
