Sitting behind a desk, in front of a computer 8 hours a day will definitely help you get some work accomplished; however, this extended sitting in your full time office space may have detrimental effects on your health. This is compounded by the doughnuts left in the kitchen in the morning and coffee and gossip in the afternoon.
In many cases, working hard and working out can’t seem to find a happy mix. However, the good news is that you can keep in shape, while getting things accomplished in your full time office. Some tips to help you do this are found here.
Complete Short Workouts in Your Full Time Office
Take frequent breaks from sitting to participate in some type of activity. This can be doing squats behind your desk, or taking a brisk walk around your office building. This will help to moderate spikes in your blood sugar and help you to focus on the work at hand. A quick session of exercise will also help to curb your appetite and improve your overall heart health.
Implemented Easy Habits in Your Full Time Office
There are a number of free apps that can be used to help you get up frequently, such as one that reminds you to your glass of water. You should also try to implement habits such as stretching while waiting for something to download or standing up during a meeting. Believe it or not, fidgeting is actually good for you, so try to do it more often.
Consider Implementing Ergonomics into Your Full Time Office
If you have a bit of money to invest in your full time office, you should consider purchasing items that will provide you with a healthier sitting environment. There are quite a few options in terms of fitness-themed office furniture. Things such as kneeling chairs, ball chairs, adjustable desks, des bikes and more can create a much healthier office environment.
