SITTING FOR 1 HOUR TAKES 22 MINUTES OFF YOUR LIFE

Let that sink in for a minute…….

It’s great that most people are now trying to get in at least 30 minutes of exercise several days a week. But if you’re on your butt for many hours at work or at home, all that exercise won’t do you any good if you’re not active for the rest of the day.

What can you do about being more active during the workday?
For every hour you sit, set aside 2 to 5 minutes to stand up or move.

Examples of what you can do in those 2 to 5 minutes:

Simply stand up (make your phone calls or do emails on your portable devices while standing)
Do jumping jacks, push-ups, sit-ups, lunges/squats, or burpees.
Pace at or around your desk
Walk down the hall, get a 12 oz drink of water and go to the restroom. I guarantee you will have to go to the restroom again in 55 minutes. Repeat several times a day and you will also get your needed amount of water per day.
Stretch! Do some yoga poses.
If you have an office to yourself, put headphones on and dance!!!
Be Creative!!! Just as long as you’re moving 2 to 5 minutes every hour.
