This is an interesting article about the way Americans' lives have become more sedentary as well as the effects that even simple movements can have on one's overall health.
I've noticed since I left school and now have a job that involves A TON of sitting that I have gotten into worse shape, even though I'm still getting a fair amount of exercise. In particular I've noticed that my legs get tired after standing for shorter periods of time than I used to. Part of that is because I spend more time sitting outside of work, and I've started driving to the store and stuff, but I think that the chunk of time spent sitting at work is the biggest factor. I'm trying to determine ways to become more active at work.
My question is, how do you keep moving throughout the day? Do you have habits such as a quick malk around or something that you do to keep the blood flowing a little, maybe going on a run at lunchtime?
Also, on the average weeknight, how much time do you spend either at your computer or watching tv when you're outside of work?
