From Sitting To Standing While Typing: Why You Need To Change Your Working Habit
from makeuseof.com ............... Writing full-time keeps me sitting at a desk nearly eight hours a day. My office chair is not one of those Lexus ergonomic models designed to take away the pain of sitting, and though I’ve tried using “take a break” apps like Time Out , I often sit way too long for my health.
So after reading articles and studies about standing while typing, I decided to try it for myself. This article is about my experiment with changing a habit we take for granted.
"There is also a river called Helikon [in Pieria]. (...) But, they go on to say, the women who killed Orpheus wished to wash off in it the blood-stains, and thereat the River sank underground, so as not to lend its waters to cleanse manslaughter."
