Stand Up For Your Health

Stand Up For Your Health

Most Americans spend an average of 11 to 12 hours a day sitting.* How many hours do you think you spend sitting per day?It's not easy to break the cycle of sitting - especially if you commute to work and spend most of the day at a desk. But too much sitting can be hazardous to your health.Challenge yourself to find ways to move more throughout the day with these great ideas:

  1. On your phone: Instead of scrolling your phone to pass the time, do a 10-minute workout app or video.
  2. In the office: Organize standing or walking meetings at work.
  3. At your desk: Set reminders to get up and move every 30 minutes.
  4. On errands: Skip the drive-thru and walk into the bank, pharmacy or coffee shop.
  5. In front of the TV: Do lunges or yoga poses while watching TV.
  6. On the couch: Challenge yourself to walk one lap around the neighborhood before settling in on the couch.
  7. On the road: Take frequent breaks when driving long distances.
  8. Schedule your time for exercise, just like a meeting.  Some folks find that exercising before work, is a great way to get it in before your day takes over and it’s a way to beat the traffic. Others like it as a break during lunch.  Or after work to help unwind and relax before you head home for the day.
