    Hi Darleen,

    As an office employee – someone who spends most of the day interfacing with a computer – I found this article both enlightening and frightening. According to the article you posted researchers, “…found that people who sit for most of the day are 54 percent more likely to die of heart attacks.”

    Between my job, the classes I take, and trying to relax at home with a good book, I realized I am on my Glutinous Maximus about 80% of the day! Not good at all. I am going to try and incorporate some of the suggestions listed in the article.

    Thanks for posting the article.
