Any type of work that consists of you sitting on a chair for eight hours straight or more needs to be reconsidered. There are many health risks in living an inactive or sedentary life, something that Shawn Kittelsen found out a couple of years ago.
He had been working as a writer for two years, all day sitting on a chair writing. Until one day, a jolt shot through his back and he was unable to move. He developed herniated discs which left him immobile for the better part of several months.
Of course, he knew that the best solution was to exercise and get his body moving but it caused him too much pain and suffering to do so. He was trying to look for other methods to deal with his situation and he found salvation in VR. This is his story.
