Time is tight; we’re busier than we’ve ever been so here is brief and to the point article on ways to incorporate more movement into your day without putting aside any additional time via gym trips.
Need to read or do paper work? Walk on the treadmill or ride a stationary bike while ya do it.
Lunch appointment? Go for a walk and talk meeting outside or even around your office building.
Public transportation? Stand while you commute as opposed to sitting, you’ll work different muscles while you balance around corners and hit bumps!
Deskbound? Throw a box on top of your workstation and stand instead of sit, as you can see from the picture above we don't need a fancy stand up work station. Also kick off your shoes and go barefoot if possible.
Family time? Go for a walk, play an active game, go bowling, pick up a dartboard or whatever has you moving at least some of the time while you spend quality time with your fam.
Pint at the bar? Opt for a standing spot and lean on the bar top as opposed to staying seated.
Netflix night? Spend some of the time foam rolling and/or stretching while you enjoy your favourite show.
Long phone calls? Head out the door and walk while ya talk. You can throw your headset on and do the dishes, clean your place or fold laundry while you chat as well.
There are so many different ways to incorporate more movement into your day…no matter what you’re doing ask yourself, could I be moving right now?
