Try Standing in Your Office

I’ve recently put in my office a hydraulic desk that moves up and down. It’s small, but functional. What I like is being able to stand for part of the day and sit parts of the day. Since most of my meetings are spent sitting, I tend to stand between meetings and walk around the office using my headset when I’m on the phone. I’ve heard through the grapevine that this will help reduce my chances for heart disease – not being so sedentary. I don’t know if it’s true, but I’d like to believe it is.

Try it for a while. Figure out a way to get standing into your day – I think you’ll be glad you did.
