Office Job Dangers

In a time where we face over-nourishment instead of under-nourishment, the office is a dangerous place. We earn our livings sitting on our butts instead of working in the fields. What this means is that even if we exercise, our jobs may cancel out that exercise. This article Stand Up While You Read This explains the problem well.

The solution offered in the following YouTube video is great! Too often my fellow students complain that they cannot exercise due to our studies. I manage to squeeze in necessary treadmill time by taking my study material to the gym. This is an even better strategy. Office jobs offer little physical activity and coworkers frequently bring in fattening treats to share. Many offices are even stocked with free soda and snacks; weight gain is the only cost.
