On His Feet for 30 Days

Health-Excercise2(WGGB/ABC) — After a long, hard day, many people just want to come home, sit down and relax.

But one man decided to take a different approach for one entire month.

The average person spends 60% of their day seated. It’s not an entirely healthy activity when done too often. This is exactly why one man decided to stay on his feet for 30 straight days.

Dan Klois, an editor for Slate, documented the ups and downs of his challenge. The only exceptions he had for sitting were while driving or using the bathroom.

By the end of the 30 days, Klois lost 5 pounds, gained muscle in his legs, which he said were killing him by the month’s end, and drastically reduced the amount of time he wasted.
