    I used to let my most wiggly kids with special needs use it at their desks. I'm retired and my stability ball is back home.
Never thought of it for myself. Great idea!!!!!!!
PUDINTANE68 8/19/2012 7:54:00 AM

    I go this too. The ball actually makes a pretty comfortable chair.
DJHUMPHREY 8/23/2012 12:45:00 PM

    I used to do that. I need to start again

    A stability ball at my desk would leave me trying to hit the keyboard above my head! But I have seen special stability-ball chairs - a little out of my budget, though...
NAOLEE 8/20/2012 6:27:00 PM

    I can't do that; but thank you for sharing a great idea. emoticon

    I just bought a ball at a garage sale. Will start this and see. Great tip.

    My goodness I can see me sitting on a ball for 10 hours..while working. No way but funny thought.

Good for you.

    ok now I need to buy a stability ball. Thanks for the idea though. emoticon emoticon
LSIG14 8/19/2012 8:45:00 AM

    Mine is a little low for my desk so don't use it all the time - but for 15 minutes several times a day it's great!
TXSASSY76 8/19/2012 8:27:00 AM

    I've done this also... but I think mine is too low for my desk too. I do like sitting on it though... really kind of comfortable!
GINGERVISTA 8/19/2012 8:15:00 AM

    I've thought of doing this several times....will definitely have to give it some serious consideration! emoticon
PYNETREE 8/19/2012 7:26:00 AM

    Good reminder.
DIANESAV1 8/19/2012 7:02:00 AM

    I have also tried this and I do feel the diffrence. I need to do it more often. Thanks for the advice.
KELLYPAQ 8/19/2012 6:46:00 AM

    I have one. I think it's too low for my desk, but might work for watching tv. I'd probably use it more if I brought it up from the basement!
PENNYPACKER3 8/19/2012 6:25:00 AM

    sounds good
