Get Off Your Butt
Sorry. There’s no nice way of saying it. But it needs to be said. According to an ever-increasing mountain of evidence, the longer you sit each day the more likely you are to be overweight—and die much younger than you would otherwise. Yikes. The good news? Now you know. And there are things you can do, even if your job ‘requires’ you to sit for hours each day:
- Stand up and stretch—regularly
- Take a break and do some calisthenics (Worried about looking silly? Stop that. Be a leader.)
- Get an ergonomic, convertible desk that allows you to stand at work
- Do something about it today!
