standing up for your health?

i recently read a fascinating article about the risks of sitting, that’s right the risks of sitting.  “new research in the diverse fields of epidemiology, molecular biology, biomechanics, and physiology is converging toward a startling conclusion: sitting is a public-health risk. and exercising doesn’t offset it.” read the whole article here.

my husband, a research scientist who sits in front of his computer most of the day, decided to create a diy project to reconfigure his desk.  look towards the floor in the picture here and you will see his desk up on cinder blocks!  advocates of standing desks say it helps them focus and maintain energy throughout the day.  that is enough to get me to my feet.

do you have a creative office/work set up?  let us know about it.
