Simple Office Exercise to Break the Sedentary Life

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 –


Wander

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.

  2. I guess its because it's pretty rare for people to put more money in the bathroom as it's not where mostly everyone hangs out...but those suggestions and adds-on are quite very sophisticated too i love the waterfall sink.

  3. I also get rid of most of my things/dress that haven't been used for 6 months. If I have lived for the past months without using them, then it's not so important after all. it feels liberating to get rid of clutters:)

  4. The story seems interesting. We were planning to catch the movie last December but my friends got problems in schedule so we didn't push through. Maybe I'll just read about it online.

  8. I usually give our old stuff to neighbors or relatives. I'm not the type of person who keep old stuff for sentimental reasons unless they are really useful and from special friends.

  10. Prioritizing- that's what they say. But for some reason, I want my space - all of it, to be well appointed. Besides, the bathroom (powder room or guest bath) is where your guests goes, or if you only have one in the house, guests will eventually use it, so it's just but right to pay attention to it too and equip it with equally nice fittings.

  12. Enders game looks really interesting sci fi book and good for your son to be hooked on reading at a young age.

  13. I agree with getting rid of junk and memorabilia. I still do have a few things that I've held on to but I keep them to one multibox per family member. If it can't fit in the box, something has to be thrown out. :-)

  18. Wow, reading sci fi novel at an early age will hone your son into a good writer when he grows up. I'm sure he likes to watch sci fi movies too :)

  19. This is so true - being in the office - we all tend to just sit - then the elevator is there - we suffer and have a hard time with our health too - thus walking, walking - taking the stairs will always be good and healthy

  20. I agree! Sitting infront of the computer 8 hours or so each day is totally draining. Following those exercise you mentioned above would be beneficial.
