For a person that has an office job and sits for most of the day, I found this article interesting. I’m motivated to find ways to get up out of my chair and MOVE throughout the day.
I like the fact that the article doesn’t suggest we need to become marathoners or triathletes – only that we should get up and move at least once an hour and get 30 minutes of activity each day. I work out more than most of my friends do, but I tend to forget when I’m at work how long I have been sitting. I worked at a company once that had desks that you could stand by or sit in bar-type chairs. It was a nice change once in a while to be able to stand while working. And what ever became of treadmill type workstations? I remember hearing about those a few years ago. That sounds like a cool idea especially for those with office jobs. Personally, I would worry about falling or hurting myself. I have trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time….
