Is Sitting a Lethal Activity?

I knew I was fidgeting for a reason, just trying to save my own life...heh.

Interesting points raised in the article. I liked the part at the end:

We visited a chairless first-grade classroom where the students spent part of each day crawling along mats labeled with vocabulary words and jumping between platforms while reciting math problems.

Yeah, that's why I wrote this...

Also, there's a buch more studies since I wrote that on sitting and overall mortality so... yeah.

Pretty ironic honestly.

kinda sucks though that the number 1 factor that correlates with poor health outcomes is income. if you can somehow find a way to make a lot of money without sitting behind a desk, then you'll have a long ass life.

My boss was cool enough to pay for my desk to be modified. It is a modular desk, but some warranty prevented me from doing it myself. I am still stationary for part of the day, but at least I'm not sitting.

yeah i recently tried converting to a standing desk. the problem is that i wanted to do it to help correct my shoulder issues, but then i found that while standing i still tensed my shoulders. i can better relieve my shoulder strain right now while sitting but with keyboard and mouse height adjustments. maybe once my shoulders get better, i can get off my ass and add years to my life.
