I have seen a lot of articles of late on how to achieve the desired posture while sitting at my desk.
I didn’t use to have to worry about this kind of thing.
The folks who requisitioned my office furniture did.
But I home office — like more and more workers out there — so now the ergonomics of our home office space is up to us.
You can spend a lot of money on desks and chairs and ‘strategery’ your layout, but some spine czars say simple things like putting a pillow behind your back can make a big difference.
My favorite piece of advice?
Put a book on your head. Your body automatically aligns itself to maintain balance. I’ve tried this one, and it works — on me, a little too well.
You see, my head is really flat. I can slump and the book stays.
(That’s why I like this method so much.)

As a city dweller sans car, I must employ a lot of strategery when out-and-about shopping.
For example, you want to buy the big items last (so you carry them the shortest distance), which makes pre-planning your route key.
That’s why I am particularly excited about this new store in South Korea.
The items are actually touchscreen; you tap the ones you want, and they are waiting for you at checkout — no more shopping carts!
