The Hidden Dangers of Writing

As a writer, I’m used to sitting for long stretches, typing out my latest story or blog post. And that is on top of all the sitting I do driving to and from work and being parked in front of my desk doing analytical work. Unfortunately, all that sitting might be killing me.

Cool Infographics latest infographic profile really got my attention this morning. From the well-illustrated facts and statistics, I learned quite a bit how sitting for such long stretches can lead to all sorts of health issues.  I won’t steal their thunder, but I would encourage everyone who sits for long periods to take a look. I know I’m certainly going to make some changes to my routine.

Question: do you think infographics such as these are help or hype?

  1. It also helps to have a good ergonomic workstation, if you can talk your boss into flipping the bill. One thing I do is print on a remote printer, so I force myself to get up fairly frequently and walk to the printer.
