I recently experimented on myself.
What would one week of sitting all day while working do to my body compared to my normal routine of standing most of the day?
What I discovered both shocked me and proved once and for all that sitting is not only killing us, but it’s destroying our productivity.
Flabby abs, diabetes, heart disease, and a bigger butt…a few of the ways sitting is killing you. (Tweet That) | Share this Graphic on Pinterest | Share on Facebook
This wasn’t an experiment that I set out to perform. It only happened because of a series of unfortunate events that kept me from getting to my office across town for an entire week. Unlike my regular office, my at-home office does not have a standing desk.
After one week, I realized that I had essentially been experimenting on myself.
Life is painful sometimes.
My aunt Mary recently passed away from a two-year battle with cancer. Her last days were unimaginably painful. While we miss her tremendously, we all breathed a sigh of relief for her sake when she was taken home.
I’ve never experienced the kind of physical, emotional, or spiritual pain she went through. But I have been through pain. Because of the things I have done, risks I have taken, and people I have trusted. For the longest time, I had no clue what to do with it, but over time, I learned how to use pain.
