"I enjoyed reading your info.  I like to walk about an hour a day and do yoga about three times a week.  I find that also doing stretching exercises helps with my back. "

How did you find TheTallStreetJournal.com
a friend mentioned it

a note or two

I'm sorry for not getting into the friend thing. There are a few people here who I know and correspond with in other ways, but I have been stalked before and tend to be very careful. I'm not looking for social relationships as my life is pretty good.

So my friend policy is not to do it at all. If you are looking for social links, there are many other like minded people. I don't mean to offend anyone and hope the things I write about may be useful. I certainly enjoy some of the things people here have said and like to give back.

I am very interesting in finding information and helping people who are tall and I will write about that.

a small survey for a tall person's product

Posted on January 29, 2010 at 3:58pm 0 Comments

Hey there



This is Jheri and I am helping out a bit on the Colleenified Countertops for tall people. We're not making any money on this, it just seemed like a good idea because cooking can be a pain if you are tall.



There are some other ideas for products for talls and particularly tall women, but the maker needs to be convinced this is a viable product before she goes ahead - it is a small woman-run business in Kentucky that is tall friendly, but they can't afford to make… Continue

exercises for tall people

Posted on January 23, 2010 at 6:30pm 2 Comments

Cheyenne asked about this as I worry about it.



Some of you are athletes and maybe you can add.



The first thing to note is that I am NOT a doctor and you might want to talk to one who understands this sort of thing. Your normal physician might be a fine person, but you need to talk to someone who specializes in sports medicine. Get assessed by them and they might prescribe a few sessions with physical therapists who specialize in sports physical therapy. This makes a huge… Continue

a raised height cutting board for tall cooks

Posted on January 12, 2010 at 10:00am 14 Comments

I have a lot of lower back pain when I'm bending over the low counter in the kitchen for more than about ten minutes at a time. My friend Colleen has a longer way to bend.



She and a friend came up with a raised height counter top. It is much cheaper than having custom cabinets and counters put in. They found a manufacturer and a product will be announced in soon on her blog. Feel free to share it with tall or even just tallish cooks.



The length and width can be custom and… Continue

a fantastic way to deal with stares and those questions and comments

Posted on January 9, 2010 at 8:49am 1 Comment

Face it, it you are tall you get a lot of stares and questions and comments. I think tall women get it even more because it is more ok to be tall if you are a guy.



I deal with this by being positive. When someone asks a dumb question or makes one of those comments we all hear, I smile and give them a complement. It completely changes what goes on and can leave both of us happy. I've had some very nice conversations that have started this way and have been able to have met some… Continue

a height related survey

Posted on October 24, 2009 at 7:52pm 2 Comments

I've been corresponding with a professor who has been studying sexual dimorphism in humans - lots of traits that are different for women and men. Height and height preferences come under this heading. He has done a lot of work on mostly average sized people and finds that, surprise, guys like shorter gals and gals like taller guys. He has been able to look at this question deeply across cultures and other things.



Reading his papers, it is clear he was focusing on women under 6'0 and… Continue

I noticed you mentioned somewhere that your doctor gave you special exercises to do since you were taller. I'd love for you to share those with us somewhere. Granted it'd be good for anyone to ask their doctor, but still having good information available would be great.

Also, I'm starting a mission to find the perfect office chair. I see you find one at a second hand shop. Hopefully you can chip in your thoughts on the chair, how you like it and how you found it, or if it was just luck that they had an extra tall one.

I am just saying "hi" to the tall people out there. I am not interested in anything romantic, but I do worry about how tall people make their way in the world.
