Sitting is Bad for You


I recently got a standing desk.


We’ve known for some time now that sitting all day will kill you.


Sure, there’s no way to avoid death, but why hasten it?


Makes me wonder about the wisdom of sesshins.  So good and life-giving in so many ways, and yet . . .


Ironically, one of our sanghamates fainted tonight while we sat at Waldo (which is soon to be blended into the Greater Boston Zen Center).


Fortunately, he’ll be fine.


First time I’d seen that one in 21 years of frequenting meditation halls and other such establishments.
