01 Mar Juliet Starrett – The High Performance Life Of A CEO, Mom, And Athlete

Here’s a shot of me working from home at my stand up desk. Juliet and Kelly’s work with their great book “Deskbound” made a huge impact in how I think about the hazards of “static postures.” The stand up desk was an investment I wanted to make as I considered how much time I was spending in sitting when doing computer work. It’s not all about the stand up desk (that’s just a part of the equation), it’s about movement and dynamic position changes. “Deskbound” is a game-changer.


1) Did I get 7.5 hours of sleep?

2) What is my mood on a scale of 1 to 10?

3) What is my desire to train today?
