Standing is outstanding

In Saturday's National Post Andrew Coyne devotes his column to decrying sitting. Citing an article in the British Medical Journal The Lancet, he says sitting now kills more people than cigarettes. And I agree with him. When you sit in an office at a computer all day long
  • You are not exercising any muscles
  • Your blood distribution is disturbed
  • Your lymphatic fluids pool instead of flushing away
It's why I always get up every hour and walk once around our floor when I'm at work.

Read the whole story here. Stand up for saving your own life!

Me, standing at work
