On compensating for sitting too long
I always thought I could compensate for the structural effects of sitting outside of work because I work out pretty hard and even the very muscles I was sitting on, but I found out that wasn't true when I suddenly started having chronic back pain when I hit about 47 years old. I found out the hard way that though your body can take about anything when you're young, you can't compensate for all that sitting. My chiropractor says to stand and stretch for a minute every thirty, but I think that is naive. Since I got a high desk I don't need to see him at all anymore.
