Union Safe: News: Killer Clutter – 25 June 2004

Killer Clutter – 25 June 2004:
“Cluttered desks, poor posture and hours spent in front of a computer are damaging the health of office staff, with increasing numbers suffering Irritable Desk Syndrome.”

I just knew it. Sitting at your desk all day is bad for you!

Meetings, on the other hand, are good for you. There is the exercise you get on the way to and from the meeting, the interaction with other people, a chance to move when you get up to draw on the white board. Meetings are soooo good for you.

All jokes aside, everything is bad for you these days. It is enough to make one become agoraphobic.
