Just Be Comfortable

How is an atheist different from a fox? You won't find an atheist in a foxhole. But a fox ....

How are they similar? Neither are careful to say krias shema in the proper time. [I have another similarity but maybe for a different time.]

Which brings us to today's halacha: It is permitted to read shema while sitting, standing, walking [but one should stand still until the words "al livavecha"] or travelling. One should preferably not lie down [unless one is sick G-d forbid, in which case he may lie on his side].

However if one is sitting it is forbidden to specifically stand up for krias shema in the morning or if one is standing it is forbidden to specifically sit down for krias shema at night. See Shulchan Aruch 63 and sefer Ishei Yisroel 195-6.
