Working in an office with the job you truly love maybe enjoyable for some, but it could also lead to a sedentary lifestyle. You get stuck at the office, sitting in front of the computer all day and draining you of all the motivation to drag yourself off for some physical activities afterwards.
Well if you don’t start now, you might realize too late that sitting can kill you slowly with lifestyle diseases caused by living a passive, unhealthy and sedentary life.
There are simple exercises that you can do at the office safely and without affecting your work or your officemates. Here are some suggestions –
Take a walk to a nearby park during your lunch hour and get some fresh air. It will be a good chance for you to stretch your leg muscles and get your mind off your work for a bit.
Take the Stairs
Resist taking the elevator and race up the stairs for some early morning cardio work out to start your day right. It may be quite a struggle but it can definitely help define your legs and your bottoms!
Keep A Weight On Your Desk
Keep a small weight on your desk aside from a stapler or that obligatory red staple. While reading reports or correspondence, pick up the weight and tone your arms.
Aside from these simple exercises, you might also start eating healthy and resist the temptation of snacking during working hours. Soon you will feel the benefits of these simple changes and become even more productive at work.
