Do you know how to ditch the chair and stand up more? Find out how you can take advantage of it for productivity and health without breaking your budget.

Have you ever been told to ditch the chair and stand up more?

I have!

While I had already heard about the benefits of standing up for health, I used to think I was cover.

First of all, I wasn’t exactly a sedentary.

Even though I had an office job, I used to work out at least 5 times a week.

Most of the time, I trained twice a day!

There was no way my sitting habits could cause me any problem.

Well… That’s what I used to think…

Life as we know it

Do you have any idea of how much of your day you spend sitting?

Let’s think about the most frequent daily activities:

  • work at the office
  • study at school
  • take the bus
  • drive a car
  • watch TV
  • use social media
  • read a book
  • play games

They’re part of the routine of most of us. Including the little ones.

What do they have in common?

We perform them sitting.

How to be more productive and less overwhelmed by standing up more. Because one can’t perform well and be successful if their body isn’t well.

Until a few decades ago, most of these activities weren’t part of our routine:

  • Just a handful people had office jobs.
  • Our grandparents were accustomed to walking long distances.
  • The only games kids knew were those played outside

Sitting wasn’t as regular as it is now.

That’s why its damage has only been recently identified.

And there’s probably a lot about it we don’t know yet.

Ditch the chair

Unless the school of your kids has already adopted a new approach to desks, there’s little you can do about it.

The same goes for your work environment or when you drive your car.

However, there are other opportunities you can take advantage to stand up more.

I must say that when my coach suggested me to stand up more, I was concerned.

We don’t have room for a standing desk in our place. Neither was I ready to make the investment.

WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO DO?

I started looking for affordable and realistic solutions.

Piled books

At first, I started using a pile of books.

Not being too tall made it easier since I didn’t have to collect a whole library for that.

Portable supports

But have you ever heard of portable supports for your laptop?

They were the perfect solution for me.

They don’t require much space when in use or when you need to put them away.

Sitting in squat position

A solution for when you watch TV is sitting in squat position.

I’m not going to lie to you: it isn’t easy in the beginning.

I still need a lot of improvement myself.

But with practice, you’ll be able to spend more time in this position.

Even though the objective isn’t staying in squat position for hours, it’s a simple way to change things.

And it offers a lot of benefits.
