When I was a kid, I had no trouble whatsoever keeping active. Like most kids, I only had two speeds – flat out and dead stop. These days, however, I spend a vast amount of time resting on my broad-based seat of learning either at the computer, working with students at the tutoring centre or relaxing in front of a good movie. This article sent to me by a friend is timely and I am pleased to announce that I writing this blog post in a standing position. It does feel somewhat weird but not uncomfortable so i am happy to adjust my habits to include periods of standing typing.
Since our weather has recently taken a turn for the hellish, temperature-wise, I have been walking laps around my house rather than venture out into the furnace-like conditions. One lap equals fifty steps and ten laps take five minutes. Go me!
Here is the article. Sitting Down. Read and enjoy….preferably standing up.
