Last week I blogged about my job and my concerns about how sedentary it is. I’ve worked to change my work habits, and I have been successful.
First, I reduced the amount of time I sit. If I’m on the telephone, I stand up and move around so far as the phone cord allows.
Second, instead of sitting and editing, I print the edits and ride the exercise bike or stand at the kitchen counter and do leg raises. An added benefit is, I’m getting more fiction writing done.
Third, I’m investing in a standing desk, but that is still a few weeks out.
While I’m pleased with the changes, I still have to remind myself to get up and move.
