sitting is the new cancer
homeplaceofthefuture daily log 4812
Something they don't tell you when you get a virtual job is that you'll be sitting a lot. Oh sure there's flexibility, productivity and some freedoms, but all of that is tied to a computer and/or headset. Occasionally I look down at myself wearing the same clothes, sitting in the same chair, deleting the same emails and talking to the same clients and wonder what am I doing here and why am I still sitting!
After 4812 days of working from home (give or take a few years).....I proactively went to my doctor today with the results of some bloodwork and years of sitting. I was given no drugs, which was fine with me, but I walked away with a brochure called "Improving Your Cholesterol with Diet & Exercise"
So there is it kids.....you work from home, you continually battle the inbox and fight those urgent emails and you get high cholesterol. My doctor said all my numbers in my bloodwork can be attributed to sitting down all day, but there has been some progress with my purposeful calendar invite to go outside and move (see previous posts).
