Replace your office chair with an exercise ball for all-day abdominal toning and strengthening. Sitting on an exercise ball forces you to use your abs to hold yourself in position. It improves your balance, tones your core muscles and takes stress off your lower back. Some people even find that it focuses their concentration.

  • Sit on the ball and find your balance.
  • Pull your navel in.
  • Pull you shoulders back (no slouching).
  • Place feet hip width apart.

Sitting on an exercise ball isn't easy. You might want to try it at home first to see how long you can last.
