Power Monday: Is your desk making you unhealthy?

Happy Power Monday.   I love this chic office Miles Redd  designed for his mother.  Redd moved a  table that was too large from the dining room into the back of the house to an unused library to make the perfect office for his mom.  The office has Emerald-glazed walls and a garden view.  I love the skirted  table covered in  old-fashioned chintz.  Say nothing of the blue and white lamps with green emerald shades.    

If you have to sit and work at your desk, it should be beautiful, right?  Just remember to stand up and move around every few minutes.   I’ve been reading more about the health risk of sitting for a long period of time at a desk.  I  make an effort to stand up every 30 minutes.  There are a few standing desks on the market if you are looking for an alternative to the traditional desk.

These are different times.  I found inspiration from  Julissa Arce author of  My (Underground) American Dream: My True Story as an Undocumented Immigrant Who Became a Wall Street Executive   Watch and listen on YouTube here.  

Stay desk healthy and inspired.   Power On!
