Last night facilities reconfigured my office:
Years ago the company supplied each employee with a Fitbit pedometer. I have used mine every day ever since. This device showed me that although the goal is 10,000 steps per day, I rarely get that many. Last year I actually canceled my NFL Red Zone football package when I moved only 900 steps in an entire Sunday.
To get the ball rolling, I underwent an ergonomic evaluation of my existing sit-down configuration.
I also got a note from my primary care physician indicating that a non-sedentary work environment would be beneficial for my long-term health, and facilities granted my request.
I am now a stand-up kind of guy - no more sitting down on the job. With apologies to John Milton, they also serve who only stand and type.
Standing is alive in the lab.
