“Remember, it’s good to get up every so often, anyway. Sitting for more than twenty or thirty minutes at a time compresses the discs in the vertebrae and brings on early arthritis. Take care of your health. Move around. Go for walks. Enjoy your life.”
–Barbara DeMarco-Barrett, from what might be my favorite book on writing ever, Pen on Fire. I’m seriously obsessed with this book right now. I first wrote about it here.
This is good advice for all of us, not just writers. I sit too much. And now I’m off for a stretch.
