lifestyle_logo

For many of us, our jobs require us to sit at a desk in front of a computer for the majority of our working day. Then when we get home, all we want to do is sit and do nothing. But spending long periods sitting down can increase your chances of developing medical conditions. Thankfully there are things you can do to counteract these negative effects to your health. Exercise is the most beneficial and will keep you stronger and more mobile as you age. So even if you’re sat down all day at work, here are three things you can do to stay active.

Standing up as you work

This might not be ideal for writing long reports or answering emails, but you can still incorporate it into your working life. Try standing up when you answer the phone or while reading to allow your body to burn more calories. Or try to encourage a standing desk where you and your colleagues can quickly discuss plans and ideas for the week ahead without sitting down. This technique has also been known to boost creativity and motivation. If your workplace doesn’t encourage your additional standing, use your lunch break to walk around and run an errand. You can also head to the break room and remain standing instead of grabbing a chair. Doing this frequently will keep your weight down, strengthen your bones and also improve your endurance. To find out more about bone health and general well-being take a look at Body Health Info for more information.

Exercise at your desk

There are simple activities that you can do at your desk to keep you active throughout the day. You could do some simple stretching exercises while you’re on the phone. Or you could replace your chair with a fitness ball to improve your balance and your abs. You could invest in small cycling machine that can be set up underneath your desk which you can use for five minutes each hour. Even just general fidgeting can also help you improve muscle tone and maintain a healthy waistline. Find something that you enjoy doing is key so experiment with a few of these suggestions or create your own.

Walk around more

Walking is one of the easiest modes of exercise and can make a difference to our fitness levels. It can be easily incorporated into your daily routine and make you feel fantastic as a result. You could take a break away from your screen each hour to walk up and down a flight of stairs in your office block. Or you could park your car further away in the car park, so you have to walk more. Why not buy a pedometer to see just how much you walk each day and try to increase it every day.

These three ways will keep your active and enthusiastic throughout your working day as exercising can improve your mood and motivate you. They are so simple and will allow you to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle.
