View Full Version : Get your head off your hand and uncross your legs

How is your body positioned, as you read this? Different people sit different ways. Right now, I'm typing with my legs crossed on another chair. =D

I am sprawled out across my couch, with my laptop half way on my chest and half way on a pillow. Its so comfortable :)

I'm laying in bed with my head propped up by a whole bunch of pillows, and I have my legs crossed with my computer on my lap.

Not as comfortable as it sounds because my back really hurts. D:

Im sitting upright in my computer chair with good posture cause I am awesome like that. Plus my computer chair is super comfy when you sit in it properly.

Sitting kinda slouched on the bed, with the laptop on it too. I will end up with humpback if I don't sit in a different position, but it's not like as if I have a desk or anything.

September 8th, 2012, 2:30 PM
I have both my legs crossed on the floor while I sit parallel to my desk.

September 8th, 2012, 3:18 PM
I'm sitting in a rocking chair with my legs resting on the legrest.

I hope it doesn't sound too graphic - I'm sitting with my legs wide open, one leg under the desk, and the other on the other side of the desk, monitor at an angle, middle drawer as an alternate table for eating. I am most comfortable like this. If I sit any other position either my legs will start cramping, or my toes/ankle will start feeling numb.

Hey I remember this thread :)

Left elbow is on the table, and I was putting my hand over my mouth until I started typing this post. My right leg is bent on my chair, and my left is on top of that and dangling down. So I'm half cross-legged I guess. It's a somewhat common position.

I'm never, ever sitting with proper posture at my desk. Never. I'm a bad person.

I remember this thread too! :P

I'm sitting with my legs crossed on my couch, with my laptop sitting on one of those TV dinner tables in front of me. It would be on my lap, only my mother insists that I don't put my laptop on my lap as it will fry my sperm and I won't be able to have children. She didn't like it when my answer to that revelation was "good" :P

I'm sitting cross-legged in my chair with my right hand on my mouse and my left hand on the keyboard.

I'm laying on my bed on my left side. My ankles are crossed and I'm supporting myself with my left elbow on the bed. I drew this picture because I was bored and because I'm an amazing artist and wanted to share my talents with the world. I accept commissions.

Laying in bed on my right side, my head is resting in my right hand, and I'm using my left hand to type this. My legs are positioned so my left is nearly directly on top of my right.

September 11th, 2012, 12:00 PM
My left hand is over the ASDF keys and I'm sitting with my knees up.

September 11th, 2012, 2:52 PM
I'm actually standing up (with legs crossed, no less xD) while my laptop is sitting on my dresser, which is just the right height for me to not need a standing desk.

I'm laying on my bed straight with my blanket over me, my left hand on my mouse and right on my keyboard. Oh yeah it's a laptop.

I'm sat at the kitchen table with my back leaning against the wall instead of the back of the chair with my legs crossed so I'm sat on my feet. I sit on my feet, or at least one foot, most of the time no matter how comfortable the chair might be.

September 20th, 2012, 12:09 PM
I'm sat back in my chair with my head in my left hand and my elbow resting on the worktop propping it up, right leg crossed over the left, and close to falling asleep \o/ Usually I'm laying in bed whilst typing or sat cross-legged on my carpet (I'm cool yo) but that's upstairs and I'm lazy.

I'm laying on my stomach, on my bed. I'm facing the end of the bed. My right hand uses the mouse as my left hand props up my chin. My feet are in the air for some reason. XD

I'm actually lying down in bed - right leg bent upward, laptop leaning slanted against it, head on three pillows.

Stealing this because it's how I'm currently positioned but am too lazy to describe it. I don't usually stay this way for long though because my bed kind of sucks so my body doesn't like this position for long. Eventually I'll either go back to sitting on my bed or laying my head down and only picking it up when I need to type.

My eyes are two inches away from the laptop. I'm sitting on a chair, with crossed legs. My back is arched and my hand is on the keyboard, ready to type away.

I keep putting off posting here since it always reminds me to do my handstand-pushups. >…<

I'm sitting in the Lotus position and veiwing this site on a tablet,kinda thirsty,but too lazy to get up. xD

Lying on my bed, knees up, laptop on stomach.

October 17th, 2012, 7:13 PM
Sitting in a wheel office chair. Right hand on the mouse/keyboard and left hand on the keyboard. My left leg is on one of the legs and my right leg is on the record case we have under our desk. Back is slightly slouched.
Usually I have one of my feet under my thigh when sitting.

Can't get a good description of how I'm sitting as I almost constantly change positions. Right now, sitting on a straight-backed chair and leaning back, something like this:


(That is not me. I'm not a guy.)

I'm lying on my bed upside-down (my head is where my feet are supposed to be when sleeping) with my back facing up and my feet crossed. My elbows prop my upper body up so I can use the keyboard and the laptop touchpad in front of me. Also, my laptop's on a chair without a back, opposite the bed's headboard, and it's positioned within arms reach. I don't usually use my laptop while lying down, and when I don't I sit in a typical position (my back tends to hunch, though), but I'm lying down right now because it's more convenient. :D And it's night time here, too, so it's a bit more comfortable to be in a position that I can doze off quickly.

My left leg is crossed over my right leg and my head's on my left palm, haha. Pretty much exactly what you wrote in the title. XD; That's usually how I sit; my head is usually in my left palm while I use my right hand to use the mouse.

October 28th, 2012, 8:06 AM
i m sitting upright and my head was on my left palm xD xD

October 28th, 2012, 10:07 AM
Sitting cross-legged on my bed. Pretty boring, but so easy to describe. :P Was sitting quite awkwardly up until a moment ago but had to get up briefly to tell my roommate something so that worked out well.

October 28th, 2012, 12:30 PM
I'm sitting with my back hunched and my legs apart.

October 29th, 2012, 3:50 AM
I am sitting on a bean bag with my feet in the air..quite comfy

October 31st, 2012, 6:27 AM
well, i'm sitting on a chair, and my left foot is on the seat of the chair, and my right leg is kind of crossed over the seat of my chair... yeah, i'm having a hard time describing my position right now, but basically none of my feet are touching the floor.

Right now I'm lying on my bed, well not really lying with my head against the pillow, I think it's probably bad posture how Im sitting but I dont like sitting upright.

Currently I'm lying on my bed, with my back against the wall. My laptop is on my legs, just above my knees. However, in about 10 minutes, I'll probably change my position, as sitting on my bed in one way gets kinda boring after a while. Normally I alternate between my current position and having the laptop on the bed while I sit cross-legged and type like a hunchback. :D

November 8th, 2012, 1:58 PM
Right now I'm sitting on the couch with my legs crisscrossed and my laptop on top. I might change my position soon when my legs get tired and shift where I am facing. That or just uncross my legs but for the time being I am comfortable with how I'm currently positioned.

November 8th, 2012, 4:09 PM
Taking the "post a picture" idea because I'm too lazy to explain the awkward way I'm sitting.
Most others look at me and say "doesn't that hurt?"
Nope, just how I sit. On the floor. Lack of a desk, I guess.

Let's see here... I'm sitting on the couch with my laptop on my lap obviously. My right leg is crossed over my left, so that my laptop is elevated enough to keep me from hunching over to type and risk worsening my scoliosis(because I should of had a back brace when I was younger honestly but never did. Can one worsen scoliosis by hunching their back to type?), at an angle so that the calf(however you spell it) of my right right is resting right above the knee of my left leg. My hands are resting upon the keys of my elevated laptop.

November 8th, 2012, 4:54 PM
Not sitting at all right now, I'm bending over my desk with my hand under my head lol. I was about to go to bed so I already got up.

November 8th, 2012, 7:44 PM
I'm currently sitting in a dinner chair while shaking my right foot. Honestly, I'm not too sure why I shake my foot, but it does help me tremendously at maintain my focus. It's a great way to help me tune out other things in the room.

I swear I was at exact same position when I was reading the thread title. That made smile a bit.
