Stay Healthy and More Productive with Movement during the Workday
We know that we don’t always feel great when we are sitting for extended periods of time but studies say that it is actually unhealthy to be too sedentary during the workday. This doesn’t mean we have to stop our day and do a full workout. Katy Bowman, author of "Move your DNA: Restore your Health Through Natural Movement," states that we should "exercise less, and move more." Here are some ways you can move incorporate movement during the workday while staying productive.
Move To A Standing Desk For Presentations Or Calls
Many offices are using shared standing desks for employees to use while they are giving a shared screen presentation or having an online conference call. This is a cost effective way to stand up and get some movement during the workday while still getting work done. If your office does not have these, try setting your alarm on your phone to remind you to get up and walk around every hour to remind yourself to get moving.
