More and more, I am reading articles about the negative health effects from sitting. As time goes on, I am starting to feel it. I spend many hours a week sitting behind a desk. My posture and legs have been impacted, plus I had a tennis elbow that took time to heal and healing time was lengthened because it was the right arm that was always using the mouse. Years ago ergonomics was a huge thing, I have not heard or read an article about it recently. Ergonomics is- It is still not enough, especially for those that sit behind a desk. With computers, our movements have diminished even more. No longer are people getting up from their desk and walking to the fax machine or to the copier. Many people do not leave their seat for hours on end and this is a health risk. People were not made to sit immobile for hours, our bodies need to move. Recently we have new desks that have people stand. Standing is good but still not enough, we need to move throughout the work day. How remedy this, I do not know but it is something people need to recognize and figure out what they can do to incorporate movement in their work day. I realize that many of the monkeys here have jobs that require walking or physical activity but some find themselves required to sit behind a desk. This is a great article that write about Always be moving: A morning run or evening Spin class may feel great, but if the rest of your day involves sitting on your ass, a brief burst does little for your overall well-being. Always Be Moving Krav maga sent me the following suggestions of what to do to beat the sitting and keep moving. Please note: you do not have to do the exercises that they suggest but think of what you can do easily without huge disruption to your work time. Lunges can easily be done while talking on the phone, it works. No matter what you do, just keep moving.
