Even when I'm not gaming, I'm starting to feel like I'm getting a gamer's neck. Undecided

Depends on the mood and stuff. Sometimes I sit properly, but most of the time I sit in poor posture.

I sit slouched about 80% of the time, dont have any back problems.

I think that humans naturally go into the most convenient and thus healthy position.
Actually forcing yourself to sit "propper" is causing lower back problems:

Of course, actually doing some sport has major benefits to eventual back problems.

(plus get a propper office chair;  just as with your bed, you use it for many hours per day,
thus the price per hour of use is quite low compared to many other expensive toys)

If I am on a chair I generally sit a little slouched, I am usually on  the couch though with one of those breakfast things, the table that goes over your lap lol.

It's best to sit with a > 90 degree angle between your thighs and chest. <3 my Steelcase Leap chair, but I still slouch a bit. I also have a hard time not sitting on one of my legs, even though it is terribly uncomfortable after about 10 minutes.

If I try to slouch, I fall off my stool. Roll Eyes

(In the mornings I have to sit on a stool because my desk gets really hot in the sunlight, and then later in the day I'm too lazy to move back.)

I have my beautiful zebra striped chair with its graceful straight back... And I still slouch and put my forearms on my desk... My posture isn't that bad, and every once in a while I correct myself for fear of my back hurting the rest of my life! But hey, it sucks having to wear glasses because you need to lean in to see everything on the monitor clearly... I just can't help it!

Sunlight? I board up all the windows to keep that nasty stuff out, that is if I happen to be awake during the day.

But sunlight is the best! The only reason I don't like it is because I get up early, and when the sun starts to rise I know my family is starting to get up, which means noise and distractions Sad Mornings are my favorite time because they are so peaceful... I sacrifice sleep for an extra hour of peace and I love it!

I don't slouch overly much, but I have a habit of resting my head on my left hand which turns my body. I hate sunlight when I code Grin

Oh, you all code indoors?
I hike into the middle of the woods, 3 days of "coding" at a time.
My family worries.
But if I am ever in danger I simply tug 3 times on the trail of extension cords...

It depends on what I'm doing.

Say I'm actually typing a document or doing my work, my posture isn't that bad.
My posture seems to effect my typing speed as well. When I'm not slouched at all, I get a fairly nice 100-120 WPM.

If I'm sitting in a chair or chillin' with my laptop, I will be horribly slouched, and have a 9/10 chance of falling asleep. Needless to say my typing speed ends up being roughly 85-100 WPM.

Also, if we're talking about photos...
