Oh man I'm screwed. I have low energy and will sit all day at my job. I really need something that forces me to get up more often.

One of these? I googled "stability ball chair"

I'm probably going to die next week, then.

That's all I can find anywhere. The one I saw in person like 2 years ago seemed more challenging. It was just the ball with a mini back thingy.

If you want challenging, just go for a ball.

I'm trying to stand more myself because I do feel like I sit way too much.

My past boss used a treadmill desk. She sat down a lot anyway. It is hard to really draw or anything with them (which she does often)

Um, but does this study address that some people who sit more have diseases already? Like, hmm, I'm dying of cancer, I think I'll sit down. It's not going to start a squatting revolution.

Damn! I was hoping that they would say lying down is slightly better than sitting up cause right now I spend my days reading and laptopping and I can do both of those lying down. But no such luck.

If anything, this is directly linked to whyever sleeping too much will kill you. Which is true.

Well shiitake, it must be due to the addition of the frigid cold.

This freaks me out, I knew this job would be the death of me.

How is sleeping too much defined? Like in hours

You're markedly better off if you take breaks from sitting, even if all you do is walk down the hall and back. Or just stand up and stretch.

I'm so fidgety at work, I'm constantly getting up to go to the kitchen and make tea, and go to the bathroom. So I hope this will save me.


Ha, +1! Finally, my constant restlessness pays off.

Apparently, 7 hours is just right. It's pretty vague though:

7 hours and 2 minutes, however, is deadly.

I am doomed. Doomed. Not only do I sometimes sleep too much, but I'm going to suffer an early death, probably later this week, because I'm employed as a potted plant.

I'm going to set Outlook to remind me to get up and walk around for a little bit once every hour. Which seems sad. Has anyone seen anything about how frequently one has to stand/walk/skip/jump in order to live 'til next week?

I think you have to stand on one foot hopping for the rest of this week to make up for the past week in order to make it to next week.

Now I know why I've been feeling so shitty. I'm dying. In fact I'm probably already dead.
Which would explain why my feet are so cold.

This is some awesome spam.

We need to make haikus out of her language.

Too bad "Ziggurat little anteater" is 8 syllables.

Wanted to see this
cheeks nice and attractive
comfortable birds

What if I'm sitting in a half lotus, is that bad for me? Maybe I should just lie down.
