Walk n Work…

With the help of my husband, we crafted the #DIY #TreadmillDesk featured above. Why? Because ‘driving’ a desk for a living was killing me.  Literally. Research has shown that humans aren’t designed to sit all day.  We are more energised, focused and are less likely to suffer from the ill effects of slouching in front … Continue reading Walk n Work…
