Sitting could be the latest health hazard. In a study from the American Journal of Epidemiology, people who spent more leisure time sitting had a higher risk of mortality. Women who sat more than six hours a day were 37 percent more likely to die during a 14-year period than people who sat only three hours; for men, that number dropped to 18 percent. Sitting less is the obvious solution, but what if you have a desk job? Walk while you work by using a desk built around the treadmill like the TrekDesk (www.trekdesk.com) or TreadDesk (www.treaddesk.com).

"I've been using the TreadDesk for quite some time now and I can't say enough good things about it! The tread itself is quiet, responsive, compact, and sturdy. Working while standing up and walking has been an easy adjustment, and my base speed has increased steadily. I'm a college professor, and have spent the last twenty years sitting at my desk. I set up my computer at my TreadDesk so that when I'm working on it I'm standing or walking. I really wish I had this arrangement from the very beginning. I can't imagine ever going back!"
