Do You Sit Too Much
Sitting too much is bad. I am sure this is something everybody knows. Why is it bad and what it does to our body? A few of us are aware of this and a few others are yet to consider this seriously. Here are a few facts for you to know. They are surprising, and most importantly informative. Watch this video and when you are done maybe finding a place to sit when you have an option to stand doesn’t feel good anymore.
Take the stairs whenever you can.
Carry a small water bottle to your workplace so that you can get up often to go refill it.
Stand and walk around once in a few minutes… maybe half an hour or once in one hour.
Walk and Talk- I am not suggesting to walk and talk on a busy road.
Drink more water- It’s good to keep your body hydrated. One more important thing is that now you have a reason to get up and walk to washroom.
When you are at local food joints, prefer to collect your food by yourself and if you have an opportunity, be kind enough to get coffees and teas for your hardworking friends.
Engage yourself in some or the other physical activity every day- It might feel tough to make time for it but realise how important it is. Give yourself that 20 or 30 minutes of exercising time every day.
Make use of your foot more than your phone- If you have friends close by to your place or if you have friends at workplace and you talk to them in an intercom. Meet them personally and talk instead. A better communication and importantly a way to get some break from sitting.
At times when you are made to wait for something, choose to wait by standing or moving in the premises. Walk and try exploring the place.
Why worry with finding a parking place right opposite to the place where you are about to visit. Stop a little far and now you have plenty of place for your parking and plenty of steps for your walking 🙂
There are many more to add to this list. I am sure once you try a few of these you will explore rest of the other ways by yourself. Tell us your favourite way to avoid sitting too much. We would love to hear from you and would like to hear some suggestions regarding this topic and we would love to implement too 🙂
