Re: Is standing too long bad for you?

Oh yeah, I forgot to clarify that I too try to "fidget" and move around the office as much as possible. Which isn't a lot, but it is uncomfortable to never ever move.

This will not shock anyone who has ever worked a retail or fast food counter job...

Humans were meant to move around, not to stand *or* sit in one place for hours at a time.

Good stuff here. I have started to stand more during the over the last few months. Fidgeting is key.
If you don't push yourself, who will?
