I just got back from the Atlanta Salesforce World Tour, where I helped man the AppBuddy booth. I got to answer all sorts of questions about GridBuddy and Salesforce in general, but more noteworthy is the fact that it was 9 hours of standing with no chairs and only an hour break. It was a little brutal, and reminded me just how out of shape I am.
It also reminded me of news I'd heard a few months back: that a number of health professionals and researchers have recently come forward to declare that "sitting is the new smoking". The amount of time you spend sitting per day has a direct impact on your health, especially as time goes on. In the short-term, the reduced time spent on your feet affects your weight and metabolism, and in the long-term, leads to complications that stem from those effects and even increases your odds of cancer.
So what can we do to help with this? Here are a few things that we, as Salesforce admins and professionals, should do to get our butts out of our chairs.
