Join the Stand Up Desk Revolution and Live Longer (Hopefully!)

Leading a sedentary lifestyle and sitting down excessively is said to be as bad for your health as smoking. The simple message from a lot of health professionals is the longer you stand, the longer you live. When I am at NEH Philippines in Davao I use their banana boxes under my computer to ensure I stand more.

(6) You live longer. A piece in the NY Times mentioned that sitting for extended periods of time is strongly linked with increased mortality and metabolic syndrome, regardless of how much exercise a sitter gets. It is estimated that people sit up to 12 hours a day during working hours, commuting, eating and watching tv. You cannot simply exercise away your sedentary work habit of sitting all day as your exercise will not undo the damage done by excessive sitting.

(2) Go to the toilet more (this will happen once you start drinking more water);

(3) Stand to answer the phone or make a call:

(4) Use a stand up desk for portions of the day. See below the many examples of where you can have a make shift desk that can go under your computer when you want to stand or be removed when you want to sit; and

(5) Set the alarm on your phone for every hour to remind you to stand and move your butt.

See here for some more ideas to “Be fit, not fat at work”.

Greasing the Groove

A lot of people exercise too much. This eats into their family time, time for self and time for work. It can be counter productive and there is a way to maintain your fitness even whilst on the job.

It is called greasing the groove where you are simply a lot more active during the day therefore eliminating the need for excessive cardio activities after work. I have heard it said that by simply using a stand up desk you are doing the equivalent of 6 marathons a year. That’s cool.

Imagine then the enormous benefits of using a treadmill desk or biking desk as shown in the pictures?

My beautiful daughter really enjoyed doing her work on the bike. She said it actually was fun and helped stimulate and invigorate her. Indeed, research shows that by simply moving more during the learning process you retain more information.

Be like Ironman Vic and try to incorporate more standing in your life. If you want to try this yourself, you might want to gradually ease into it as it takes a little getting used to.

Vic's Stand up desk

Vic said “I got mine from one of those Japanese Surplus shops. Lots of options to choose from based on your needs.
And easier to decide to cut the legs (if necessary) since its 2nd hand.  Also try Dona Soledad in Better Living Paranaque. They have a branch in Alabang, Zapote Road.”
