Standing Desk – Sitting is the New Smoking

How many hours do you sit each day?

I only sit during meetings now. When I am at my desk, I am standing up. Not only do I have more energy, but you actually burn more calories when you are standing versus sitting. I also tend to move around more since I am already standing up.


This is my new set-up at home with a tall dresser and I do the same thing at work with a taller file cabinet. It’s a free solution if you have a laptop. Standing desks can range in price, but if you have a dresser or file cabinet that is the right height, this option costs you nothing at all.

Sitting is the new smoking according to much research, so stop sitting so much!
