I recently returned from a glorious, once-in-a-lifetime trip: a choir tour of Scotland, during which I sat very little, sang a lot, and ate way too much! I loved exploring Scotland’s gorgeous landscapes on foot.
I’ve been less active back home, where dangerously hot weather has limited outdoor activity. I’ve been sitting too much, as I’m prone to do during summer slug season.
Recent widespread publicity on how sitting lowers life expectancy, including this article from US News & World Report, was just what I needed to get off the couch.
Perhaps I’ll set a timer as a reminder to get up every few minutes. I’ll also add this article to my collection of research that affirms the benefits of walking at work.
