Sitting too long can kill you

By HappySkinnyGirl

“It doesn’t matter if you go running every morning, or you’re a regular at the gym. If you spend most of the rest of the day sitting — in your car, your office chair, on your sofa at home — you are putting yourself at increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, a variety of cancers and an early death. In other words, irrespective of whether you exercise vigorously, sitting for long periods is bad for you.” – The NY times

I’m sedentary most of the time, but when I started standing most of my day my body is working better and my weight doesn’t creep up!

I got rid of the computer desk, and use the drawer instead. It works perfect, cables are hidden and I got some extra storage.

    I get a lot of standing while I am cooking and checking my gardens, but I guess I kind of draw the line at the computer. I just try not to spend too much time in front of it. I sort of go about my chores & activities and then computer time is where I rest my feet/ankles when they start to hurt too much.

    ‘Course, if my arms are hurting too, then it’s sit and read time, LOL!
