Out of the cubicle, into the light?

I am absolutely convinced that having a job that requires me to spend a good chunk of my day in front of a computer is contributing to my depression. What jobs can I do, given my background, that will get me a bit of social interaction and challenge? (Not too much social interaction, just a little).

is my background. Right now, most of my department is scattered across the United States. We have meetings by conference call. My boss has worked remotely for the better part of 20 years and I work from home at least one day a week.
My day involves mostly doing a lot of legislative/legal research and figuring out how to make sure the company is doing the right thing. I'm not bored, exactly, just ... unfulfilled and getting a lot of depersonalization/derealization from having to do so much work in front of the computer. I still have $25K left to pay on my law school loans so getting another degree is probably not going to happen. I'm 44. I'm not interested in practicing law. Any ideas?
