Although the graphic below is to promote the use of standing desks it does share some interesting statistics on the sedentary nature of our society. The graphic below states “Even 1 hour of daily exercise can’t compensate for the negative impact of incactivty on insulin levels if the rest of the day is spent sitting.” Although I spend plenty of time up and down I also spend an inexcusable amount of time sitting.
If a standing desk doesn’t work for you there are other options. When working from home I will sometime relocate to the kitchen and stand at the kitchen counter.
Have you every assessed you activity level versus sedentary time? What adjustments have you made?
