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 we sit each day the more likely we are to be overweight—and die much younger than we would otherwise. Yikes. The good news? Now we know. And there are things that can be done, even if our job ‘requires’ us to sit for hours each day:

  • Stand up and stretch—regularly
  • Take a break and do some calisthenics (We are leaders, right?)
  • Get an ergonomic, convertible desk that allows you to stand at work
  • Do something about it today!
