Sitting at your desk for 40+ hours a week is slowly killing you. Standing is healthier and apparently makes you more productive. Plus Walter Murch does it so it must make you a better editor!
I’ve previously blogged about the importance of a decent workstation set up a couple of times – so be sure to check those out as well for some further tips and tools.
