My Feedback to David’s Epic Post:

Hi David,

What a wonderful post, it is!
A very timely piece! And am sure this is going to be a viral one!

Indeed, this is a must read for all writers! Especially we the bloggers! ๐Ÿ™‚

No doubt, Health is an important factor in our life! And we need to give much attention to it otherwise, we will suffer at a later stage.

When coming to the ย facts in relation to writers, their sitting comes to my mind first!

Yes, sitting is smoking! It really kills us on a slow process. Some time back, I read an article on this line written by the comment Queen Harleena Singh in her pages AhaNOW. And she was talking about the dangers of continuous sitting! which we the bloggers canโ€™t avoid! That time onwards I started practicing writing, reading while standing, and my desktop computer I adjusted to that level to stand and write, and I do still practice that at home after sitting 8 hours before the computer in the office. Even sometimes I stand and do work with the computer in my office, for this, people around started laughing at and I just ignored and continue this even in office and at home! Yes, moving around in between writing or reading after one hour or so also will do wonders!

The wonderful tips you have presented it here is really worth practicing!
Yes, the key word here is โ€œMOVEโ€ wonderfully coined it!
Yes, we need to move, move and move, that will surely help us to overcome such difficulties our writing career!

Dave, I am really surprise to note about our famous and great writers too noted this in their time! That is really amazing! I never knew that! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh my, my favorite writers like Ernest Hemingway, Charles Dickens, Virginia Woolf all are reported to also have written standing up!

Their time, I doubt they never used any computers, but still their continuous sittings might have given trouble to their health thus they practiced writing by standing! Wonderful information!

Again, I liked that 20-20-20 formula!!
That is indeed a good idea to practice, I am going to practice that! Thanks for sharing that!

The eye strain is another serious factor we need to look into it,
Yes, Dave even to read this post I struggled a lot, and I do increase the font by using the Ctrl+ buttons! I am sure that will give a smooth read! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

The internal injury or the repetitive injury is also a serious thing to take care of!
We all face that, but often we neglect it at our peril! As you said we need to take care of such invisible things,
Oh, myโ€ฆ altogether you presented a viral post here and a must read for all writers, especially the bloggers.
I am bookmarking it for my further read, The connected internal links are really worth reading. Though only few I visited in need to do it one by one to get more info on this line!
Thank you so much, Dave, for this informative and timely post. Yes, an eBook in itself.
Have a great day,

May you have a great week ahead.
Keep sharing

Good post. I have read about the dangers of long periods of sitting for those who work at the computer.

Donna Merrill

Hi Philip,

Thanks so much for the reminder to read David’s post. I never knew there were so many ways we can get injured by spending so many hours in front of our computers. I have read the post on AHANow about sitting is like smoking.

I do take breaks in between tasks. I had to use a timer to go off every 50 minutes. Now it has become a habit. And a good one indeed. I didn’t realize I was getting eye strain from sitting too long.


David Leonhardt
Hi Philip. I am so glad that my post inspired you. “Move” is definitely the key word, because it not only helps with blood circulation and muscles, but it also helps with eye strain and depression and pretty much anything else that a writer (or designer, or virtual assistant, or translator, etc.) faces. Funny thing about those writers who write standing up – I do my best thinking when I am pacing around the room. I think I need a desk that follows me around. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love all your comments and observations. Keep up the great work and God… Read more »

Hi Phil, Health is wealth- that’s what I always say! I’m glad you linked up the sitting is the new smoking post as well as David’s, which are both great reminders for all bloggers and writers especially ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a must for all those who lead a sedentary lifestyle or sit for long hours. You know we wrote about the Standing Desk soon after this post, and even use it ourselves after gifting one away as a giveaway. It really does help and I am glad you too are using one. I think as long as you keep moving around… Read more »

For all bloggers. writers, as well as the IT employees. or jobs related to the computers and of course all who sit and do their jobs is a must read! David brought out some of the serious aspects which we all need to look into it very seriously! Otherwise it will surely lead us into peril. ๐Ÿ™‚ Harleena’s post on Sitting is the new smoking! is really yet another shock indeed! I never thought of such a seriousness in sitting!… Read more »

Hi Brother Phil, Thank you very much for sharing this much valuable post from David Leonhardt. This is a post that should be read by anyone who has to sit long hours in front of their computers and it is a very common scenario among people working as software professional, web designers and other’s with similar type of jobs. Still I am reminding here that the dangers are more for professional bloggers if they should not take necessary precautions to get rid of all such troubles whether it is for their eyes or for their neck or back. One thing… Read more »
Carol Amato
Hi, Philip, First of all thank you so much for your kind mention. I’m SO thankful for my daughter and son-in-law because they really made a difference in my health and LIFE. I’m much better, so thanks for your prayers for me also. You know, Harleena inspired me to have the stand up desk created, and I’m so glad I did. There are many health risks to a sit down business, and I for one have changed my lifestyle. However, genes play a huge role as well, so the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is a pound of cure… Read more »

Hi Philip Sir,
I came here after so much time, but I am telling you this post has made me very careful about my health.
I work about 9 hours sitting before computer and even more time had to be spent because of work overload. You made me to go to Carol’s cut where i leant more about health.
Thanks for this warning.
Now I am taking better care of my eyes, brain and overall body physically and mentally.
Thanks a lot.
