    Sean,
    Your words were beautifully stated, and I share your sentiments. I think about how blessed I am to be able to teach individuals from all over the country and learn about my students' paths, their hopes, and their dreams.

    If you use Windows 10, you can download an egg timer. If I plan on grading for more than 3 hours at a time, I set an egg timer to get up and move for 10 minutes every hour. 
    I have a standup desk from Autonomous at home and a Varidesk at work. Here is the link to Autonomous.

What I struggle with is taking breaks (I have to put a timer on my phone to force me to get up and walk around the yard or get up and stretch) and making time to walk or exercise, since we sit for a while. I was thinking of getting a Varidesk at…
