This recent article from Psychology Today discusses the concept of "Optimal Defaults" as it applies to preventing obesity by improving diet. The core notion in "Optimal Defaults" is to make the healthy option the de facto default option. If you want to eat unhealthy food you'd then have to go out of your way to get it. ... as opposed to having to go out of your way say to find fruits and vegetables. This got me thinking about Active Motion Sitting as an "optimal default" for desk work. Right now 'sitting still' is the (unhealthy) default and you have to literally go out of your way to get healthy physical activity. If you use an Active Motion Sitting machine such as activeLife TrainerTM, your (optimal) default is "moving all day" ;-)
