    I agree. I have found changing to a standing workstation and taking frequent (at least every 2 hour breaks), along with working out regular has improved my work and mental quality this past year. My brain does not work when my body cannot move enough. Simple things like moving the copy I am taking down from one side of my desk to the other side while I work down the pile help my brain, eyes and fingers “reset” and make less errors when it is strictly data entry. My husband tried to change to a standing workstaion, but did it too fast and his back hurt. I hope he keeps trying, as it can so dramatically increase work quality and efficiency if you can move and take a break for perspective and refresh of your own brain from time to time. Often the brain will solve the problem while moving down the road or hallway. Also sitting too long increases risk for heart attacks greatly, especially for office workers who sit all day without enough activity to be physically fit.
