Get up! Get vertical!
Want to get vertical at the office? It’s as simple as standing up. Office dwellers can look into using standing desks or treadmill desks; but if you’re stuck sitting all day, you can still stretch your legs with a short walk every 20 to 30 minutes. Take micro-breaks. Get adjusted during your lunch break and return to work refreshed. Frequently stretch your neck, arms and wrists, back, and legs. Simple stretches include neck rotations, fist clenches, arm dangles and shoulder shrugs. Squeeze your eyes shut tight to break eye tension from working at the computer. Get moving. You don’t have to work out like a pro-athlete, just aim for a minimum of 20 to 30 minutes of exercise three to five days a week. Stand up or take a walk while talking on the phone. Encourage your co-workers to walk with you at lunch. Eat right. A healthy diet—rich in fruits, vegetables and healthy fats—can help reduce inflammation and joint pain. Bring lunch to work to save time for exercise and avoid take-out or fast food poor choices. Limit red meat, refined sugar and white flour. Just a few simple changes can help maintain a healthy weight and have a positive impact on your overall health. Can’t find your game?
