What’s Better Than Sitting In Bed To Read Or To Watch TV?

Everything. This is one of the worst things people can do to their body because it makes the body slump… 
Sitting up in bed

I've treated patients who couldn't get rid of their back pain until I uncovered this problem and had them stop doing it.

The thing about sitting up in bed is that your hips are lower than knees. I write about fixing chairs and car seats with seat cushions to raise your hips up all the time, but there isn't a good way to sit up in bed that doesn't harm your body.

Instead, lay on your side. This is the least stressful position for your body during sleep and it works well for reading also. Not so much for watching TV.
