I find myself tempted to propose a pledge we all take: the 20 minute pledge. There are 1,440 minutes in every day. Of that total, 20 minutes represents less than 1.4 percent.
If just standing more and sitting less can add years to life and life to years, then we owe a lot of ill health to the seats of our pants. The solution is for us each to incorporate strategies into our daily routines that allow us to get up and move about -- at least a little, at least intermittently.
