Fortunately we are all becoming more aware of the importance of being active in order to maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle. Yet sometimes our lifestyles don’t offer much room for being active. If you are one of those people who finds themselves sitting at a desk for most of your working day then you will know what I am talking about. It doesn’t mean that you don’t love your job, or that you would want to change it, however there is no denying that sitting all day just isn’t great for your health.
The human body is designed to be active; in fact we are supposed to be active for at least 14 hours of the day. When we sit for prolonged periods of time on a regular basis, specific bodily functions such as hormone production, start to stop functioning as they should be. This can result in poor circulation and a lowered immune system which can both lead to chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart disease, cancers, and that’s not even mentioning the negative effects it can have on your mental and emotional wellbeing!
If this is all applicable to you, don’t start looking for a new job just yet, I am here to share some of my secrets on how you can incorporate a little boost of fitness into your usual day of sitting!
