Stand In The Place Where You Work

The New York Times says sitting for too long can be deadly, even for people who exercise regularly:
[Researchers] found that the more hours the men and women sat every day, the greater their chance of dying prematurely. Those people who sat more than eight hours a day — which other studies have found is about the amount that a typical American sits — had a 15 percent greater risk of dying during the study’s three-year follow-up period than people who sat for fewer than four hours a day.
That's former secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld at his famous standing desk.
