Move More During Your Workday
Sitting at a desk all day can lead to a sedentary lifestyle, but there are ways to incorporate movement. Here's how!
Take frequent breaks. Stand up and walk around for a few minutes every hour. This can help improve circulation and prevent stiffness in your joints. Consider using a standing desk or an adjustable desk that allows you to switch between sitting and standing.
Include stretching and exercises in your day. Simple movements like shoulder rolls, neck stretches, and leg extensions can help loosen up your muscles and prevent tightness. Additionally, you can use resistance bands or small weights to do arm and shoulder exercises while sitting.
Take a walk during your lunch break. Walking not only adds movement but also helps improve mental clarity and focus.
