• How to build a perfect workstation
• How to sit better
• How to stand better
• How to work out on company time!
The last section is a two-parter, because not only will I give you exercises to de-chair your body on your movement breaks, but I will also show you how you can exercise your body while you are simultaneously working (you won’t need extra time outside of work to do these exercises).”
~ Katy Bowman from Don’t Just Sit There
As Mark Sisson says in the introduction to this book, Katy Bowman is “the world leader in the burgeoning field of biomechanics and how it relates to optimal human development.”
Katy has a popular blog called “Nutritious Movement” and an equally popular podcast called “Katy Says.”
Alexandra loves her and has been encouraging me to read this book for awhile—especially on days when she sees me with horrible posture as I’m reading or typing! (Which, unfortunately, is most days. Hah. Need to work on that. :)
This is a great, quick-reading, smart and funny look at how we can optimally transition from sitting all.day.long to creating a standing and dynamic (<— key word!) workstation to help us optimize our whole-body health.
Let's explore some of my favorite Big Ideas:
1. Q: Sitting New Smoking? - A: No. But be dynamic not static.
2. Are You Active... - ... AND sedentary?
3. Micro Movements - + OTMs.
4. Train Your Eyeballs - Work 'em out, yo!
5. Night-Lighting - Is not evolutionarily wise.
Here’s to making our days more filled with dynamic movement as we take baby steps to optimizing and see those benefits aggregate and compound!
