I must confess that only a few months ago I was amazed to learn that the simple act of sitting can be damaging to my health. Okay, you have to be sitting for a while, but not all day. This is something you need to know more about. One observer called sitting the new smoking and I actually used that as a header on a blog post. You can decide for yourself whether that is inflammatory or not. When the staid New York Times gets into the discussion, I think it’s time to find out more.

For one thing, sitting too long doesn’t help trim the belly fat (smile). Since I read this, I think I’ll stand for a minute.
Thanks for your comment. Standing and moving is a fine idea. Don’t feel bad. I am astounded by the fact that such a seemingly innocuous act as sitting can be so damaging.
