How to Live Healthier When You Have a Sedentary Job
I know it’s hard staying healthy when you must sit all day to do your job. If you’re like me, I can’t stand and type very well. I don’t know why. I spend more time correcting typos than typing. For some reason, it is very difficult for me. As I write this, I am standing and trying to type accurately. I’m getting better, but it’s a process. Some people, though, do very well with stand-up desks. One day I would like to do so as well.
I find that if I get out of my chair for a minute or two each hour, I can get my blood pumping. I use this time to get a drink, gather supplies, or use the restroom. I have also split my workout into two parts – 30 minutes first thing in the morning and 30 minutes when I get home from work. When it’s nice out, I walk during my lunch. It rejuvenates me for the afternoon workload and just makes me feel better. I really can’t wait for spring! I prefer walking or running outdoors.
I am going to start yoga soon as well. I want to be more flexible and toned. Getting older is not my friend. It’s hard work to keep everything where it belongs! In any case, I’ll give a review in a few months to let everyone know what worked and what didn’t.
Of course, all these ideas are mine. I am not a professional in fitness. I do what feels good and what I like. I just believe that any activity is good — and good for your overall health. If you would like to begin a fitness journey, please seek the guidance of your physician before you are doing anything strenuous. No one wants an injury of any type by not being prepared.
