Get More Active At Work

HOW YOU CAN BOOST YOUR ACTIVITY AT WORK


• Make a few extra trips to the water fountain – good for hydration, too

• Set your alarm or use a personal fitness band to remind you to move every 30 minutes

• Get up and talk to colleagues rather than sending an email

• Stand up and wander around for that phone-call

• How about a walking or standing meeting? It is supposed to help the creative juices flow and avoids those painfully long conferences.

• Consider using a standing or treadmill desk – studies show they can help

• If you can get outside, even better… fresh air leads to fresh ideas and boosts vitamin D.

• When you are sitting, adjust chairs to keep you supported and upright

• Alter screen height and brightness to suit you. A poorly positioned keyboard and mouse can contribute to wrist, arm, shoulder and neck pain, so make sure your keyboard and mouse are not too far away from you.


Dr Sally Norton, a weight loss expert, urges people to take the stairs, stand up and walk about while you're on the phone and make a few extra trips to the water fountain, to help boost fitness and up exercise levels
