More On My Stand-Up Desk

Too Much Sitting Is Bad For You. US News.com ran an article yesterday about the health woes of sitting. According to the research featured in the article "[t]hose who spend 11 or more hours a day sitting are 40 percent more likely to die over the next three years regardless of how physically active they are otherwise . . . ."

Citing a study published in the March 26 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine, the USN article mentions that "[s]everal workplaces in Australia are testing sit-stand work stations . . . a generally well-received initiative that may be a future option for other offices. "Try ways to break up your sitting and add in more standing or walking where possible," said study author Hidde van der Ploeg, a senior research fellow at the University of Sydney.

This takes me back to an article I wrote in October on this blog about the stand-up desk that I use at my office. As I mentioned then, I have used a stand-up desk for years, and I love it.

I just happened upon your article while learning about standing desks. I had no idea they could look so professional. I am a new associate at a firm and despise sitting for long periods of time. Thanks for the inspiration!
