Listen, these days we all spend a little too much time hunched over in front of a computer. Checking Twitter, hate-reading blogs, love-reading blogs, checking Twitter again, going to Facebook, checking Twitter, checking Twitter because you accidentally typed tw when you meant to type something else, forgetting what you were just going to look up, reloading Twitter, looking at the menu for that restaurant, hate-looking at someone’s Instagram who you don’t follow because you hate them but you still want to see what they’re up to, and so on. We’re wasting our lives, but that doesn’t mean we have to waste our postures! Check out these five easy steps to a healthier you:

1. Lie supine on the floor, relaxed, with your arms and legs spread apart. Breathe deeply in this position and gather strength.
2. Bring your legs to your chest, roll to your side, and push your body up with your arms. (Just figure out how to do it.) Come to a standing position.
3. Walk slowly and deliberately to the drawer where you keep your hammer. Grab it and hold it above your head.
4. Walk slowly and deliberately to your computer and hit it with the hammer until it is very broken.
5. Throw the remains out the window and don’t buy a new one.

EASY PEASY! This guy also has a thing you can do:

Huh. Either way! (Via Lifehacker.)

  1. “Could you just stick with one position for a goddamn minute?!?” – his girlfriend

  2. Mmm papi!

  3. I’m going to try this later, pull a muscle in my back, be unable to get up, and live out the rest of my life on the floor. Hopefully someone remembers to bring me food.

  4. I hope one can do that wearing shoes. Otherwise it’s a great way for me to smash my toes into the ground.

  5. I like that the exercise he made up is the “best” one.

    also, I prefer child’s pose or that other yoga pose where you’re basically in a fetal position. Fetus pose?

  6. Also, if you do all of those things kelly mentioned on your phone, then your posture will be just fine!

  7. This is the beginning of the wrestling team’s warm up “bridge” that you could only do if you were 17. The one where their back bends the wrong way? And it looks like they’re Gumby?
