I started a new job back in June. It’s very sedentary. I’ve always had desk jockey jobs, from being an Air Navigator to not for profit work, they are all office work. My current job though is completely at a computer. No lugging and slugging but I did have a ergonomic assessment early on that has me set up nicely. I continue to walk to work but I’m noticing my hips and shoulders getting tight with the more sedentary role. I had been stretching in the hall when I took my breaks but I was getting odd looks. I decided to switch it up with some dancing in the hall. Well, it’s really caught on as my dancing is reciprocated with other people’s boss moves. I’m feeling good, I’ve got my joie de vivre back and it seems to be catching on.

Fun, great idea! Dance, if you dance! DANCE!
Very much enjoyed Nina Simone and can relate to the body freezing up and the need to get moving … thank you … warm regards Karen
I don’t know how long it will take me o dance like I used to but I’ll get there.
Haha. Good for you! I have basically decided I can never accept another desk job unless I have my own office or work from home where I can stretch or dance without odd looks. 🙂 My life is a hundred times better this year since I accepted a teaching job where I am on my feet all day. My body thanks me for it. But then again, I didn’t have the courage to dance in the halls when I had a desk job. 🙂
