Kelly Starrett has written a book that has completely changed my life. Deskbound: Standing Up to a Sitting World has been a huge blessing to me and my lower back. Last November I started experiencing severe lower back pain. My doctor told me that the space between my discs was shrinking and that I would eventually have to get surgery to fuse the discs. I started researching and somehow stumbled on this book. My school purchased me a standing desk and I went from sitting 4-6 hours a day to sitting a total of 1 hour throughout the whole day (INCLUDING LUNCH). What does that have to do with homeschool children? Well, everything actually. In this podcast, I introduce the idea of having your children stand to do their homework. Look for a post later in the week that will go further into depth regarding Dr. Starrett's research and explain the why's behind some of the things I say in this episode.
