I’ve written before about how much time I spend on my tuchus. One simple change I’m implementing is to stand when I can. I’ll stand up at work to stretch. I’ll stand when I’m only going to be in someone’s office for a minute or two. I’ll stand beside my laptop at home. I’ll stand to read my book.
According to this calorie-burn calculator, I can burn thirteen additional calories for each fifteen minutes I spend standing versus sitting. This bbc.com article explains additional benefits of increasing one’s time on one’s feet.
To keep me inspired, I’ve created a mixtape of songs about standing. Enjoy!
