But, during the day, I work at a computer and sit in meetings. I do my best to get up from my desk often and try to fit in short walks during the day because I know how unhealthy it is to sit for such an extended time period. I have this article hanging up at my desk so I remember to keep moving throughout the day.
I would like to do more during the day to keep moving and de-stress. So, I made up the chart below with stretches I can do at my desk. I'm going to do my best to go through the routine every morning and afternoon.
If you are stuck at a desk all day like me, give this a try.
- Stretch often
- Stand when you talk on the phone
- Get up at least once per hour
- Plan walking meetings if you can
- Move move move!
