I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Heard a radio program on this subject--and got thinking about how much sitting I do.
My job requires me to sit at a computer and type.
My favourite non-work activity is reading--and yes, I sit to do that as well.
So, yesterday, I decided to stand while reading for a while. I stood for half an hour while reading and it wasn't too bad. My plan is to stand for half an hour of reading each day this week. Maybe next week I will increase the amount of time to 3/4 of an hour. Added to my half hour walk each day, at least I feel like I'll be trying a bit harder!
What do you think?
