Stand Up While You Pitch

November 20, 2007

Sometimes we stand up while we’re on the phone or doing something in our cube. Maybe some folks in the office think we’re crazy, but it’s good for our health, and now we can prove it. Lifehacker reports:

A recent study at the University of Missouri-Columbia reaffirms that a sedentary life increases your risk of diseases like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and obesity, but the study suggests that even if you get in the recommended 30 minutes of activity 5 days a week, sitting for the remaining 15 and a half hours of the day is still trouble. The solution? According to the article, just standing up more frequently throughout the day to type or do chores can do wonders for your health and double your metabolic rate.

We think this will be especially valuable after Thanksgiving weekend. Get that metabolism going!

  1. I stand up sometimes while I pitch because I feel more confident. Glad I’m getting a work out too!
