A standing desk is not enough, and yoga blocks allow me to rest in a squatting position or sit with greater external rotation in my hips, thereby gently challenging the range of motion that sitting so much has taken its toll on over the years.
But helping me watch TV and eat dinner? After buying two of these things, I've found all kinds of uses for them that I describe in the episode.

I accidentally called vajrasana “shivasana.” This is what I do with the assistance of a blanket rolled up beneath my ankles and folded up between my knees.
What do you do to increase the positions you can work in and prevent your work from interfering with your mobility? Any household uses of yoga blocks I left out?
