...20:8:2 regimen – or sitting (in a good posture) for 20 minutes, standing for 8 minutes and standing while moving (think gentle stretching or walking) for two minutes – is ideal.
New research indicates that people should vary their posture throughout the day. Standing all day is no better than sitting all day.

Exactly. A recliner is far healthier than a straight backed chair with your feet on the ground. So sit in a recliner, moving a bit while you are sitting. Get up and move around once in awhile.

Some tasks are best done while sitting. Standing uses part of your brain's processing power.

I can believe that. When I worked as a field service technician and electrical designer and was troubleshooting a PLC program, I found that I was far more successful while sitting than standing. It was easier to think and keep my brain on task.

Do you suppose that is proof that we don't sit on our brains as some might think? :wink
