The work style of sitting at a desk for hours has long been considered harmful to health. But new findings from the Mayo Clinic suggest a few significant changes in how we work can be beneficial to health and improve cognitive performance. Researchers refer to an active style that reduces workstation sedentary time. Features include a walking pad, bike, stepper and/or a standing desk.
