I'm a psychotherapist which is a super sedentary job. It almost made me want to reconsider professions. Actually I used to be a paramedic and it was very sedentary. You sit ALL DAY in the ambulance while waiting for calls. I'm now using a standing... (more)

I used to go to a psychologist who would make some sessions walking ones - we'd walk slowly around the lake in the back of the building for an hour or so. I lived in a rural area then, so confidentiality wasn't an issue. Still, this or something... (more)

yes, it's great. simple yet complex/difficult. requires lots of practice in small increments, regression/progression, figuring out what you are doing "wrong" and so it's nearly impossible to correct yourself well. basically you may be able to... (more)

So, I have a desk job and I've become conscious of how easy it is to sit all day unless I make a conscious effort to get up and move. What are your tricks during the workday to incorporate more movement?

If your job was to spread the Paleo Diet to the world, how would you do it? Where would you start? A "tell at least one person about the Paleo Diet" Day? That's the best I could come up with at 3am.

I have moved away from trying to preach about "Paleo" -- it weirds people out, they think it's a fad diet, and they get distracted by the "wait, didn't cavemen die at the age of 25, and that's why they didn't get cancer?" type of questions. They... (more)
