How can your desk be healthy for you? You’ve probably heard by now that sitting at your 9-5 desk job all day is “the new cancer”, and maybe you’re wondering what to do about it. Find a healthier desk!

The first step is to decide how big of a change you’re ready to commit to. Take a look at your office space – do you have enough room for a whole new set up? Or are you looking to make smaller adjustments to your current work station? Do you have any interest in exercising WHILE you’re working?
