After a quick chat with a friend I found myself later pondering over the very conversation as it pertains to me and this is what I have gathered:
If we sit to do one thing and then repeat it the habit increases with time and a fundamental laziness has taken place.
Me: I have now sat at my desk job for two entire months and witnessed stress marks on my inner thigh two nights ago. I am devastated, at 27 I feel 30 and not that that is a terrible age I mean to say is Anthony also found a grey hair. Is it stress, work, life that is weighing me down. I sit so much now I have no issue with sitting when I got hired I thought I would have a hard time sitting down. That Varidesk is a great idea and should be enforced in all office for employees who wish to have it. I want to move and walk not roll in a chair I can take three steps eighty-three times if necessary. Its not difficult to move in small burst nor to stand all day if you slowly work up the stamina, strength and stability to do so for hours upon end. Taking a break and sitting for a couple of hours is not a problem but actually a sanctuary once done with a long stand session, allowing for ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation for your body to continue working! Then when I come home and most likely sit down to relax my mind and unwind from work stress and then I turn on the tv and I am stuck, hard core stuck.
AKA Right now
I can’t even find time to finish a thought on paper, page, screen, what do we call this a modern day scroll?
While stuck in the mist of the television series I still find time to see the poetic justice in the murderer recording his own murder. Ah death the thing we wish we could avoid, is it because we can’t?
Back to the fact that I am not the queen of sitting -my ass vouches for that- I am embarrassed to say that I spent this weekend with such little movement that I didn’t even realize two and a half days had passed, for me it was if it was a single night. Instant stretch mark.
How do I grow from that, you may wonder, I sit indian style to write this story after sitting probably 6 of my 9 hours. Not impressive but I did walk to work, BONUS POINTS! I would have walk home but then the conversation that began this story would not have come to exist, thank you universe for being!
I was going to take a thirty minute walk during lunch but forgot the stoplight was out and crossing a major street that has now become a four way stop is not the most fun. So I walked roughly 8 minutes, a quick call to Anthony and a country song.
I’ll admit to another distraction this time articles -yes online because no I do not get a paper, nor do I get the paper- and one leads to another so seamlessly I hardly realize I am 4 articles in.
