The lack of movement is a major contributor to back, shoulder, and neck pain, digestion issues, fatigue, increased stress, and poor quality sleep.
Walk & Talk
Got a phone call? Walk around while talking and get more steps in.
Stretch it out
Stretch your body for 3-5 minutes every hour. Set reminders so you don’t lose track of time.
At work: try active meetings where you talk to someone while walking around the office instead of sitting at a table. Got an outdoor space, double the benefit and take the meeting outside.
Up The Stairs
Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Strengthen your muscles and burn some calories while you’re at it
Use your desk chair and mobilize your spine and upper body. Rotate, arch, round your spine, open up your chest, and give your neck some love.
Get On Your Feet
Stand! Put your laptop on a countertop or something that brings it to eye level and get the blood flowing as you work while you’re up on your feet
Invest in a large exercise ball and use it as a seat. Keep your core actively engaged as you work, fold laundry, or even watch TV.
