Keep Active

A recent article, 5 Ideas for staying fit at work says that sedentary working all day long can utterly cause damage to our bodies.  It is dreadful for our health, so finding ways to move regularly throughout the office can help us keep active and engaged.

Here’s how.

  1. Work face-to-face.

You can walk around your office space to talk to your colleagues instead of sending a quick inquiry through email or chat.  It allows you to have a more fruitful communication and a great chance to get up from your desk every now and then.

  1. Give yourself a healthy reason to get up from time to time. 

Do some simple habits, like stretching your back and shoulders while waiting to download a file, drinking from a water glass that has to be refilled frequently or remain standing during a short video conference/meeting in a meeting space.  

  1. Make short workouts.

Get up from your desk and have a quick walk outside your team office space or just walk around the office while chatting with a colleague, find a partner to join you for a five-minute workout.  Also, there are some desk exercise equipment you can use, like dumbbells, resistance bands, hand exercise balls and balance discs.

  1. Use ergonomic office furniture.

Make your sedentary office routine healthier by using ergonomic office furniture like ball chairs, kneeling chairs, leaning/standing stools, desk bikes, adjustable desks, under-desk mini stair steppers, ergonomic footstools, arm exercisers and hand exercisers which help prevent carpal tunnel.
