Ah, also like “erect kneeling”, knees on something padded, and otherwise “standing” straight. (If I’m doing standing meditation and my feet start to hurt, I switch between standing and this type of kneeling.) Different postures change salience of different feedback loops. Safer.

more distinctions: sitting without back support, sitting with back support (still erect), and hella slumped in some comfortable couch or chair in some long-term comfortable way. always mix with erect/unsupported sitting and standing!

Of course sometimes (often) it would be completely counterproductive, but, during some regimes, netflix/hulu/amazon video are great for the boring, lonely meditative or entrepreneurial grind. What is this timeline

Ah, protip: You find something with many seasons that is semi-repetitive and not *too* good. Then less cognitive burden while meditating and net less boredom. (If you are going through stuff where tv is interfering or crutch then, again, counterproductive.)

Glamorous / exciting!

Oh, more for completeness: leaning with back (butt) against low things like countertops where everything above the lean is unsupported/erect. Leaning back against walls. Finally, sometimes facing wall bracing with hands.

Also, E Tai Chi (https://www.amazon.com/Tai-Chi-Basic-Book-Simplest-ebook/dp/B01MREOH1P/ ), custom/ad hoc tai chi, and custom/ad hoc yoga asanas
