Mimicking the Sympathetic Reactions to a Threatening Environment

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 16 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

For my room next year, I am working on custom designing a combination loft bed/desk. Maybe I’ll make the desk higher so I can stand:

By mimicking the sympathetic reactions to a threatening environment (sitting up straight, standing, moving quickly, deeper breathing), it appears to be possible to activate the sympathetic system, which then takes over. We are ready to act, or in our case, be productive. We can also change our environment to one that causes the sympathetic system to activate, one that is more spartan, threatening, or simply uncomfortable. The result? We take action. We are more productive.
