Week Four: Sitting Less
Did you know prolonged sitting has been linked to all sorts of complications that threaten our overall health and wellbeing? See if you can intentionally disrupt the amount of time you sit by popping up and stretching or walking a little every 30 minutes.
Here are some additional ideas to try:
- Sit on something wobbly, such as an exercise ball or even a backless stool. This will force your core muscles to work. Make sure to sit up straight and keep your feet flat on the floor in front of you so they support about a quarter of your weight.
- Alternate between sitting and standing at your work station. If you can't do that, stand up every half hour or so to walk. This can be an opportune time to refill your water bottle.
