The Latest Workplace Wellness Craze: Fetal-Position Desks

Wellness experts say the best way to stay healthy and productive in the workplace is to curl up in a ball on the floor.

This just in from The Onion: Wellness experts say the best way to stay healthy and productive in the workplace is to curl up in a ball on the floor.

Sarah Holloway, a fictitious employee at SlashForward Marketing, says her fetal-position desk makes the workday go by faster.

"I feel better. I have more energy," Holloway tells the Onion. "And I don't get that 2:30 feeling anymore where I'm like, 'Oh no, didn't I want to be a novelist?'"
