So, I am one who works at a desk all day. I frequently get up, go to the bathroom, refill my water, walk just for the sake of stretching, etc. Standing all day would be bad news for my slightly weak back (it used to be very weak but regular exercise has strengthened my core considerably, which has helped my chronic back pain), so rather than going for a standing desk, I just make sure I get up very frequently, stretch, move around and whatnot.
One of my favorite websites, MindBodyGreen, has this helpful article for those of us who work at a desk all day and might need some tips on staying healthy in spite of our desk jobs.
Great tips found here – do you have any other tips to add? Do you work a desk job?
