I work all day in an office and can only exercise over my lunch hour so I really only get 45 minutes in. Other than that, I sit most of the day. I feel like I am not doing enough. Is there anything I can do in the office setting to increase my calorie burn?
Great question! When we sit for long periods of time we increase our risk of heart attack by over 50%! One of the easiest ways to make a change is to elevate your work space so you stand instead of sit. When you stand, you will “dance” back and forth between your feet and this will help you burn more calories. Also take every opportunity to walk around to speak to your coworkers rather than calling or e-mailing them. Use the stairs instead of the elevator.
