We’ve got aching feet as we write this week’s post. For our challenge today we decided to go a day without sitting.
We take for granted the amount of sitting we typically do in a day – in some ways it’s been refreshing to have a day long stretch. In fact, many health studies have shown the dangers of prolonged sitting, so this is probably something we should be seeking to incorporate more generally for work days.
The day started off easy. We had a standing breakfast and worked a few hours on our computer standing on our kitchen counter. We went for a long walk, and started to feel the need to lean and shift our weight around the 10th hour. Finally lifting our feet as we write this post makes us feel like we’ve earned the rest. It’s a great voluntary discomfort to appreciate an every-day luxury. We can all stand to do this more often.
