EP 939B - The Benefits of Active Sitting
After moving and starting a new job, Scott Bahneman was puzzled about why he was gaining weight. What had changed?

He realized that his new job required him to sit at a desk for 10 hours a day and it was negatively affecting his waistline.

This inspired Bahneman to create the SitTight chair, a tool to help people practice "active sitting." The SitTight chair is intentionally unstable, forcing the sitter to work his or her body in order to balance.

Tune in to learn how improving your balance also benefits your brain and can be used in treating ADHD, dementia, concussive head injuries and more.
