On the topic of the ball, I've read that sitting on a ball for an extended period of time is actually still not good for you. In fact, sitting up straight, without any support, while it *can* strengthen the muscles in your back, you're still putting all of your upper body weight on your lower half. While a ball can be great for moving around and doing minor desk exercises, it's better to switch between ball and chair, giving your spine a rest, since having anything under your bottom just compresses the spine. That being said, imagine what you're doing to your back if you start idly bouncing on a ball during your work day? When I'm using my ball, I have to try really hard to only roll into positions that work my core or sit still.
