The longstanding advice to "sit up straight" has been turned on its head by a new study that suggests leaning back is a much better posture. Researchers analyzed different postures and concluded that the strain of sitting upright for long hours is a perpetrator of chronic back problems. Do you agree to this from your personal experience?

But leaning back feels tiring more soon , I dont know now what to believe but it is more comfortable to sit leaning back though u get tire easily with it

I thought leaning back is more relaxing. Research may bring in contradictory results but we need to apply our wisdom. I think there should be a judicious mix of both, sitting straight and leaning back.

I don't know what to think, they are constantly changing their minds about everything. I figure what feels good to my back is what I'm going to do and leaning back is not it! I'd rather lean forward unless I'm relaxing. I don't see how they expect people to lean back and work.
