Getting off my butt

From what I’ve been hearing and reading, sitting at work all day will shave years off our lives.

I don’t want that to happen. So, today I decided to use a standing desk. I’ve tried standing up at work in the past, but for various reasons have stopped. I’m giving it another whirl. I’m tired of just sitting on my butt all day while I work. As the picture shows I have a chair underneath the desk, that’s for propping up one leg at a time; it helps give my feet something to do.

Now, if I only I could put a treadmill under this desk. Then I’d be ready to go!

    1. After a few hours I find I get tired. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m just starting out. I tend to stand for a few hours and then sit down when I get tired.

You bring up some great questions. The desktop PC as we know them may be in danger with the explosion of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets with the development all things in the cloud, one has to wonder is the desktop PC current version going to be ancient history. On the other spectrum is going completely cloud really going be that great with cyber threats increasingly in the news and what happens to people who don’t plan their scopes properly with multiple backups when their cloud storage goes down.
