Spend a few minutes, or even a hour or more, using your exercise ball in place of a chair or sofa. You use more muscles! I really enjoy doing this. I use an exercise ball (Swiss ball) while sitting at work, and at home, I'll deliberately pull the ball and use it to sit!
Try 5 to 20 minutes and see whether this "agrees" with your body. I do this all day at work, by choice! : )

i traded my chair for a yoga ball. it is fun to sit there and bounce around on, do crunches, squats, and many more antsy pantsy exercises while you are computing! oh, maybe even swap the dining room chairs for yoga balls. burn the calories as they are being eaten!!
