Stand while you work
Back in February, I wrote a blog post about research that found sitting all day was really bad for you — even if you exercised regularly.
Sitting for long periods of time changes how your body metabolizes sugar and fat. The research suggested those with desk jobs should get up regularly and move around.
But if you still don’t want to spend most of your day sitting, here’s a solution — a standing desk. It’s adjustable height, so you can raise it up so your computer is at eye level while you’re standing and work on your feet.
When you get tired of all the standing, press a button and lower the desk and you’re back sitting in your chair again.
