Walking is good.

Recent university studies show that taking a steady walk for at least two minutes every hour an positively decrease the negative effects with prolonged sitting.  Those detriments, spinal/muscle stiffness and decreased blood flow in the body’s trunk and legs, cannot be determined by just standing in one place without movement(i.e., standing desks/work stations).  Small, two-minute activity breaks, such as walking, cleaning, light calisthenics and gardening, are beneficial.

These two minutes an hour are associated with a 33% lower risk of death so let’s all keep moving.
