  • Like a breath of deep crisp mountain air...this article will surely help me. I drive all day from patient to patient wtih home health nursing. So I sit alot but do have some periods of walking (short distances). - 7/15/2009 4:43:32 PM
  • I can see how each on of these ideas could help; however, if one should do any of htem too often, they are likely to not have a job to complain about. - 7/15/2009 11:48:09 AM

    Great Article! I sit a a desk up to 8 hours a day and although I try and walk as much as I can it still has an effect on my neck and shoulders. This definintely helped give me some ideas!
    Thanks! - 7/15/2009 11:09:50 AM
  • now I am convinced by the nap! As most workaholics (and dog owners) I don't get enough sleep as I'm out of bed at 5.30 most days and never in early enough to make it 7 or 8 hours (even on Sundays). I discovered power naps when I was writing up a thesis a few years ago and it's been my secret weapon. Even in the library (never mind what the people say! I know what I' doing!) - and I'm just only discovering that stepping up on the elliptical (as most of my work is done from home) will do wonders when I feel drained and sleepy! - 7/15/2009 9:41:11 AM

    Mike - Thanks SO much for this article. Your articles are the best, and the ones that I always save to read again later! I work at home in front of a computer all day, so this was just what I needed to jumpstart the slump I've been in! - 7/15/2009 9:24:03 AM
  • I work in health care as well and walk at least 10 miles a day. I find it hard to lose weight and many of the suggestions listed are already built into my day. What now? - 5/8/2009 1:45:11 PM
  • Anyone who works at a desk job can relate to this article. I swear by that 20 minute power nap - I don't use it often, but when I do, it works like a charm! Thanks for the tips :) - 5/2/2009 6:06:28 PM
  • I have to agree with some of these other comments left. I would like to see some articles pertaining to on-the-go jobs--jobs that are in the healthcare fields for example. I am a veterinary assistant and am on my feet 90% of my day, my husband is a chef so he's on his feet all day, so is my brother and my sis-in-law works respiratory in a hospital. We have had various talks about other things we could try at work yet it would be great to hear some from a professional too. - 4/23/2009 9:27:52 AM
  • I would love to see some articles for those of us that have very physical jobs instead of just the desk jobs. - 4/22/2009 8:58:53 PM
  • Thanks Mike! Your articles are all very good and full of great ideas. - 4/22/2009 1:07:19 PM
  • Excellent ideas. I will share them with my students! (Especially the posture information.) - 4/21/2009 8:58:49 PM
  • Great ideas.
    I try to take a walk around the perimeter of the campus on each of my 15 minute breaks. It's just a few minutes, but it adds up! - 11/18/2008 9:17:04 PM
  • GREAT article!!! However, for me, it is more like 3 AM in the morning, when the screen is not only blurry, but my hands get heavy on the keys and I ZOOM through my charting, and have to go BACK and redo it...hate that.

    Some things I do to help me get through this tough time....Drink those little bottles of ENERGY drink. They really do help. I can drink coffee and go right to bed, so that never worked. The OTHER thing I do , is take a break and do a Sudoku puzzel!!! That really stimulates the brain and gets me more awake.

    I also will get up and WALK a bit! - 11/2/2008 11:30:02 PM
  • I gained 30 pds in a year and a half from office work. I had to quit, and find something that I could move around some.. All I did was eat, eat, eat! - 9/9/2008 11:06:48 AM
