Stand and Wrap
Tis' the season to wrap, and wrap and wrap.
Wrapping gifts (and creating gifts), takes up a major portion of my time every December.
I used to sit while doing it. I'd set up a wrapping station on the coffee table in my family room, turn on the TV, and sit on the sofa and wrap (and can easily watch a whole movie wrapping).
This year I changed things up a bit. In response to all the news reports this year as to how sitting is so bad for you, I resolved to wrap all my presents standing.
It was fairly easy to do. I moved the wrapping station to my kitchen island, which, luckily, also has a TV. Every time I found some time to wrap, I'd find a good Christmas movie and wrap away.
Since it usually takes me anywhere between 3-4 hours to wrap all my presents, that's time that I did not spend sitting.
Next step, finding a spot where I can stand and type.
