Keep Moving During the Work Day


Whether you work in an office or at home, it’s easy to rack hours of chair-time while firing away at the day’s tasks. Unfortunately, these hours of sedentary behavior can wreak havoc on your health, even if you exercise regularly outside of work. Learn simple ways to keep moving throughout the day with this free online seminar.

Sitting all day may leave you with a sore rump, and that’s not all. Too much inactivity can put you at risk for type two diabetes, obesity, heart disease and dislipidemia, which means having abnormal levels of fat, cholesterol or both in the blood. Other studies have shown that inactivity can damage your mind, sleep cycle, organs and even shorten your life. And many studies comparing sedentary behavior and longevity found that a more sedentary lifestyle leads to a higher mortality rate.

Even for the extremely motivated, busy schedules sometimes become an excuse not to exercise. This free online seminar, Fitness at Work: Simple Ways to Move During the Day, will show you how to create a workout plan to take small exercise breaks throughout the day. Not only will this help you combat the effects of “sitting disease,” but small exercise breaks during the day may help increase energy and productivity while decreasing stress.
