Scary Stats About Being Sedentary

Scary Stats About Being Sedentary [Infographic]

Posting this as my own reminder to avoid prolonged sitting.

The graphic says that it’s the time spent away from “the office” (basically doing almost any knowledge-generated work now-a-days) which is most important.  And I’ll be the first to admit that I have a serious hobby (habit) for searching out and finding anything and everything funny in the form of TV shows or film.

On another related note, I saw this article in FastCo.com about the founder of Keen, (the shoe company that makes those ridiculous sandal shoes), and his design for a new office chair (?).

Indeed, judging by the picture it seems like it’s designed to discourage sitting!

    • Hi! Thanks so much for the kind words! Really, I’m still trying to figure this out- so everything is quite minimal.

      I definitely appreciate the encouragement, and will keep posted on your blog as well.

      Thanks again, and best regards!

    With the latest press coverage about how inactivity is as deadly as smoking I thought this info graphic was really useful. Worth taking a look at ’11 exercises to do at your desk’ as well.
