Sitting is our gen's smoking

1-16-13: Great article and title on the dangers of sitting too much! If you set a lot, then read this article by the HBR Blog Network. The author talks about how she's incorporated "walking meetings" to combat this...what if we had "exergaming breaks" like smokers have smoking breaks?

One solution: Play a short 2-3 minute exergame every hour to protect your health!Instead of smoking areas, have "exergaming break areas" where employees can break the hold of sitting too much, of hypokinetic disease!

Now that would make an interesting employee wellness study, looking at the effects of such a break area on a business. ;-)

  1. But if it's fun, then 2-3 minutes wouldn't be enough :D
