Stand Up While You Are Reading This

Like many of us, I spend way too much time setting in a chair, staring at a screen.  I'm learning that this is bad for your body. I'm discovering that doctors (and researchers) are investigating the many ways that this may detrimentally impact our health - even if we have a routine exercise schedule and consider ourselves to be physically fit.

It seems that the simple act of sitting for an extended period of time is bad for our internal organs, as well as our joints, etc.  Answers?  Regularly moving - standing, stretching, moving every thirty minutes or so is being discussed.

So are standing desks. Check out this cool standing desk setup here.

It may take me awhile to get there, but I think a standing desk might be a nice thing to own. I'm gonna check into it.
