Stand While On The Phone

This Sparked Me!

I started standing up in my office everytime I get on the phone. With a cordless headset I can move around too. I'm amazed how much less sitting I do now.

    I sometimes "fidgetcize" when i'm on the phone.

    Great idea, I clean my kitchen while I am on the phone.

    Definitely walk while on the phone. Squeezes in a little exercise when I otherwise would be sitting. Love cordless phones!

    standing burns 30 calories more than sitting!
Always a good thing!

    I make a habit of walking while talking. At home, I trail a string behind me so that cat gets exercise, too! If you have a phone with cord, march in place, do calf raises, do SOMETHING!

    I usually clean while on the phone... It's great, because I don't even realize I'm doing it, and by the time I'm off the phone my kitchen is spotless!

    Excellent idea. I'll have to remember to do this.
PYNETREE 3/27/2013 8:36:00 AM

    Corded phones are so confining.... Great idea! Since I talk on the phone so much this could be interesting!!!!
ABSTRACTBUG 8/28/2010 12:17:00 AM

    I pace when I'm on the phone, be careful, if you are around others this can make them nervous! (I don't know why)
ROOTIHAUSMAN 4/4/2010 1:01:00 PM

    Great idea

    I agree I stand and march back and forth while I use my phone. We only have cell phones so never attached to a wire!
