Sit Less, Stand MoreHere’s what I did yesterday: Drove to my office, worked on my computer, attended a meeting, drove home, relaxed on the couch, and went to bed.

We have become a society of sitters. We sit while commuting, working, eating, and watching television. According to David Conroy at Penn State University, many of us spend eight of our waking hours with our butts in a chair.

The health risks of this kind of sedentary lifestyle—including obesity, heart disease, and diabetes—are well known.

Over at No Sweat, York I’ve listed four simple ways to sit less and stand more throughout the day. Check them out!

    Just read your post! Thank you for the reminder! I’ve been trying to remember to get up and walk around, but I am so guilty of this! I really could use a standing desk. Either way, I need to work on it!
