I’m coming up on my 8th year of blogging and I’m realizing just how important it is to get up and walk around often. Sitting all day, is bad for my health. My mom had chronic blood clots which led her to have several strokes. This summer my dear mother passed away from another blood clot. It’s been a very difficult few months and I miss my mom dearly. I’m worried that myself and my siblings may be pre-disposed to blood clots. It stinks!
This issue has been foremost on my mind lately and I’m evaluating everything I do in life to create a healthier life. I need to change lots of things. In my research, I’ve found that stand up desks can help prevent blood clots. I believe that I will be more apt to stretch, squat and move more while standing. Burning a few extra calories a day is also a bonus. I’d love to hear any feedback from you if you have a stand up desk. Do you actually use it? Do you feel better?
I don’t have one of these desks yet, but here are my top picks:
Black Adjustable Standing Desk – Can hold 2 monitors. Adjusts up to 47 1/4″.
Varidesk adjusts to 11 settings. Their tallest desk for people over 6’1″ tall.
Premium Desks – Adjusts up to 50″
Turn any surface into a stand up desk – adjustable from 11″ to 17″.
Do you use a stand-up desk? Leave me a comment. I’d love to hear if it’s made a difference in your health.
As your resident travel agent, I try to keep a look out for travel options for my tall friends as well as myself. If you’re tall, there’s nothing worse that being crammed into a tour bus for two weeks where your legs don’t fit. I know of a tour company that has taken out many rows of seats on their coaches and reconfigured them so that everyone has more leg room. Awesome! They only take up to 40 people on their buses, so you aren’t traveling with a massive crowd. Plus, they are one of my preferred suppliers which means great prices and amenities.
One itinerary I would love to take is the Highlight of Europe Tour – as it is a 17 day tour around Europe visiting England, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France. Land only prices start at $4945 per person (based on double occupancy) for trips this Summer.
These are luxurious guided tours with stays in first class accommodations. Many meals are included and your bags and tips are handled for you. You’ll be given headsets so that you can hear everything your local guides are teaching you while journeying to historical sites. Shorter, longer and less expensive tours are also available.
You know me from helping you find tall clothes, but I’d also love to book your travel.
I’m sticking my neck out to show you this quirky giraffe wall hanging. Could make a funny gift for your favorite tall friend. Why take ourselves so seriously? Life is to be enjoyed!
Today I’m nominating Joe as our tall man of the year! Joe is Tiffany’s husband. Tiffany writes our newsletter and blogs for us. Today he is on his last chemo treatment. As I’ve followed his blog, he has been completely honest about his journey. I’m amazed by his courage and faith! Please go over to our Facebook page and like this post to wish him luck with his last treatment:
I want to be short,
So I can fit inside a fort.
I‘ll buy shoes in my size
Just like my friend buys.
When I fall down,
I’ll be much closer to the ground.
Someone can call me “cute”
That would be a hoot!
I may become afraid of heights
And I’d wear baggy tights.
My pants would be too long
They would fit me all wrong.
To reach the top shelf, I’d get me a stool
Climbing up a ladder would be so cool!
As you can see, it’s best to be small
So I can do all the things, I can’t when I’m tall!
