We know how good it is for us to move our bodies.
But, if you’re stuck in an office or behind a screen all day, you can’t very well hit the gym for 2 hours in the afternoon.
Here are 5 tips to incorporate bursts of movement throughout your day to keep you feeling fine.
- Jump in place for 60 seconds before a meeting. Just enough movement so you don’t break out in a sweat. You can even give yourself positive affirmations while jumping, connecting a physical change in your body with a positive shift in mindset. Next level boss move.
- Stretch while on a call. Unless it’s a skype call (come on, do we really need to see each other), you have the freedom on the phone to stretch it out and move around a bit. This will also help you stay focused and keep you from distracting yourself with funny youtube videos.
- Walk on lunch. We love our lunch breaks, trust me I know. But, scheduling yourself a 10-15 minute window of time to walk after you eat will not only help you digest but also prevent that after lunch slump that we’re all too familiar with.
