Adventures in exercising (while working)
Stephanie's post (below) made me think of the recent research that shows how bad sitting is for our health, even if we do also work out regularly. Stephanie's comment that exercise, sleep, and healthy eating are not luxuries really struck a chord with me. And it coincides with what I've been trying to do the last couple of weeks--move while I'm working.
I don't have enough data yet to measure what impact this is having on my body, but I do notice a difference in the way I'm responding to and processing information. I feel less anxious on the whole, I respond to questions more quickly, and I am definitely sleeping more deeply. All in all, I'd say it's been a success, even if so far the results haven't
shown up on my scale.
What do you all think? Do any of you have a treadmill desk? What do you do to break up your work and/or writing day?
