Recently, articles like this one peppered the web regarding the unfortunate consequences of sitting all day at a desk. While I’d consider myself fairly active, I’m definitely a member of the set that sits for more than 23 hours a week. At a minimum, I probably spend 5-6 hours a day in my office chair – yikes! So I decided to try and see if I could get by without a chair.
I hope to alternate between sitting on an exercise ball and standing. The former is said to activate those muscles used for balance and apparently also improve posture.
If nothing else, I anticipate that I will be much less likely to nod off at my desk.
