Staying Healthy

Any recommendations for improving posture (OTHER than an ergonomic chair)? I’m slouching a lot while working and want to know what products or tips have worked for these long WFH days.

I stick a small pillow between my lower back and chair back. This way I force my back to be straight so pillow doesn’t fall down. If that makes sense.

Herman Miller Sayl anyone ? Really need a new office chair, but a little hesitant on spending the money. I do spend so much of my time in the chair these days though, so splurging is probably OK. Just need to know if this chair is really worth it cause I sure as hell am not going through a return process.

Has anyone used a whiteboard top standing desk? Are they durable? Useful? I see a couple of companies provide this (including Jarvis). Seems like a great concept but i am skeptical because I don’t see any YouTube reviewers using this, making me thing they might not be that popular.
