Stand up and move!

Do you sit all day?

It’s bad for you and you need to get moving.

Previously, we’ve talked about how to set up your workstation if you’re at the computer for long periods. Correct setup is essential, however no matter how well your workstation is set up, sitting all day is bad for you.

There’s no dispute that a sedentary lifestyle is unhealthy. It will contribute to many major health issues. Fortunately, you don’t have to go to extremes like throwing out your chair and standing all day at work to combat negative health ramifications. You just gotta move! Studies show that increasing movement of any type will improve both physical and psychological health.

So…how can you move more when it feels like you never get away from your desk?

There are a number of ways you can get moving and improve your well-being. Our friends over at InMovement have put together this great little guide. It shows the health ramifications of sitting all day, along with some easy ways to get more movement into your day. Make sure to check out their Tips & Tricks video on Exercises and Stretches too!
