Get a Feeling ... for Kneeling

Don't have hundreds of dollars to spend on a standing desk?

That's ok.

A lot of the benefits of standing can also be achieved with kneeling. Kneeling wakes up your stabilizer muscles, prevents your psoas and hip flexors from being in a chronically shortened position, and keeps your glutes active.

And, it's cheap!

Just shove that crappy desk chair aside, put down a cushion, and you're all set.  

You can add some variety by kneeling on both knees (tall kneeling), alternating knees (half-kneeling), changing the width of your half-kneeling stance, stretching your butt back toward your heels for a quick quad stretch, etc.

Knees can't handle it? 
Come see me, I've got some ideas for you.

This is cool, do you have any other tips to make my day at work feel less awful?

I sure do!  Check out the "Floor Living" event. It's not only free, but super fun.
