Infographic of the Day: Sitting is Killing You

created at: 05/26/2011

Here at ManMade, we're big proponents of not sitting all day during work hours. Especially as bloggers and editors, where we're more naturally inclined to...sit all day during work hours.

We've covered the dangers before, even offering this easy solution to create a standing workspace.

But in case you're not quite convinced, take a look at this infographic: Yeah, it's a little dark. And perhaps a bit hyperbolic. But seriously, take a look at the facts, and think about the ways you can simply move more during the day, and not be in that most awful position of chair shaped.

It's obviously time to go for a walk.... even if it's 85 deg outside, and 60% humidity. Thanks for the push off the chair!

p.s. Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman is also a good book to read.
