Friday: Food for Thought

Nick D’s new office setup!

Did you know that all that sitting is slowly killing you?  Prolonged sitting while at work, in front of the TV, or anywhere else has been linked to back problems, heart disease, kidney disease, and other ailments.  Some companies that make desks / work stations have caught on and are now mainstreaming standing desks for sedentary workers.  Sitting for long periods can even undo the health benefits of all the time you put in at the gym.

 

FNL tonight at 5:30 and then…

Have a great weekend!

    About 3 months ago I replaced my chair with a TreadDesk tread mill and an Ergotron mount that allows for a small working area along with a tray for my keyboard and mouse. I bought a pair of sneakers just for the office and try to walk 3-5 miles a day. For the most part I can walk at a good 2mph pace and still be able to type and do my daily activities. I definitely feel much better on the days that I get some miles.
