Get Moving at Work!

Get Moving at Work!

Having a job that requires you to be sitting and not moving much during the day can be both mentally and physically challenging. It is important to take several breaks from your resting posture in the morning and the afternoon. Remember that the perfect posture is a posture that continues to change throughout the day. You need to move to keep your blood flowing to feed your muscles, nerves and organs in order to keep your body happy and healthy!

Try this 2 minute work out 2-4x/day:

  1. Shoulder blade squeezes 5 repetitions- think about bringing your shoulders down and back
  2. Marching in place for 20-30 seconds
  3. Shoulder flexion 5 repetitions (make a touchdown motion)
  4. Butt kicks (hamstring curls-alternating legs) in place for 20-30 seconds
  5. Wall push ups 10 reps
  6. Moving from sitting to standing 5 reps
  7. Open and close your hands 10 reps
  8. Take a deep breath and allow your shoulders to relax down (most people forget to do this during the day)

Your co-workers might think you are crazy but soon enough, you will have everyone in the office joining you!
