Keep moving while you’re at work
Different ways to exercise at work.
Kent Burden is a wellness coach and has authored the book: “The Office Workout: 75 Exercises to Do at Your Desk”. He states in his book it is important to move while in the office, whether we exercise before or after work. As a renowned exercise fitness coach he has developed a program where you do not have to break sweat and just moving one to five minutes per hour not only will keep you fit, mentally active, but also reduce the possibility of chronic disease and chronic pain!
While at work you must unglue yourself from your chair. This does not mean finding an exercise class at lunch: It means get up and move around for a couple of minutes every hour this stretching and moving will invigorate you. Try standing in your office putting your hands above your head, stretching as far as you can go.
