Don't Sit It Out - Stand Strong All Day Long
Standing desks keep you from sitting in a chair at the office all day. Consider purchasing a standing desk for use at home as you check email or social media on your home computer. Ask your boss if you can bring a standing desk to the office for extra standing time.
Exercise Your Right To Be Fit While You Sit
Exercise ball chairs stretch and work your back muscles. Just a few minutes per day can help loosen your muscles, strengthen hips and may help improve circulation. Try a few movements just as you awaken or an hour before bed for a quick and easy workout.
The Road To Success: (Resistance Is Not Futile)
Resistance bands create ways for muscles to exert force on simple objects. Combine these elastic bands with a notebook to record how many repetitions you accomplish on your arms and legs. These techniques help track your fitness level as you increase repetitions and work on muscle groups.
Stretch Your Limits
Yoga mats fit neatly into carrying cases, and you can unfurl them anywhere you have about 6 feet of space. Set up your yoga mat in a quiet, contemplative space for a few quick poses to ease sore muscles.
Healthy Snack Attack
Bring your own snacks from home when you take your morning and afternoon breaks at work. Granola bars, whole grain snacks, and fresh fruits and vegetables all deserve a place in the office break room. Bring water bottles filled with purified water to help you keep hydrated while you’re away from home.
Water bottles are a must when you're burning calories, and you can find one that suits your fitness profile and personality. Transparent water bottles let you keep track of how much liquid you've got left, while colorful bottles make it easy to spot your bottle from across the room.
