Are you sitting too much?

Standard

This video may describe the reason I have shrunk one inch in height the last 10 years. I do sit when I write and I sit at work for long periods of time. I am reminded of this regularly every time I look at the my pedometer and I have only reached 2,500 steps for the day and my goal is 10,000! I have tried to be more heart healthy since my dad passed away and I think I am failing!

How do you add more walking into your day?

I found these videos at the AsapSCIENCE YouTube Channel and I can’t stop watching them! They even have narrowed down different times of death for early risers and night owls. Hope you find this one as interesting as I do!

Standard

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Woot! WOOt! I think it is awesome that WordPress has made this available to their users.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,200 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
