Sitting kills you. Even if you’re a marathon runner who sits 8 hours/day, you’re cutting time off your life.
I’m guilty for way too much sitting: on the train, at work, and at my desk at home. In fact, one of my long-term goals is to buy this Restoration Hardware desk for my first house so I can sit even more and write.
My mom has been standing up at work for more than a decade. She claims she can’t think effectively sitting down. This may explain how she managed to push three boys outside the house into sports.
This blog post is a declaration for me to stand more and be like my energy bunny Mom. I will start by standing on the train’s bar car to and from New York commute. I may walk a lot and run some but it’ll never offset how much time my butt spends in the chair.

The cost of sitting.
