How To Reduce Your Health Risk with Sitting Disease

Who would know synchronicity would play into my blogging about sitting disease to the point that I am now considering a standing desk!

Did she really ask that?

Did I really say that?

We met on LinkedIn and if you are on LinkedIn you know how these things happen.
