Get Up, Stand Up

Although taught in school to sit at our desks and not stir, research continually shows that sitting for long periods is bad for health. Would you stand at a desk all day rather than sit in an Aeron chair though? Apparently Thomas Jefferson and Winston Churchill had them. And AJ Jacobs goes as far to work/write when on a DIY treadmill desk he rigged. If you can’t get used to the idea though, research suggests to get up and move every hour.
