In Cleveland, we are enjoying the warm weather. And, after taking a lunchtime walk, I was reminded of a Life Line Screening Blog posting advice from our own Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Manganaro, on how you can increase your exercise at work during the day:
• Walk 10 minutes before and after your lunch.
• Park further away from your office building
• Take the stairs rather than the elevator.
• Walk to see a colleague rather than email or phone.
• Stand when you do use the phone.
• Wear a pedometer and try to achieve 10,000 steps in a day.
This is such great advice. Especially since long periods of sitting, or Sitting Disease, raises your risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer and obesity, which was the topic of our previous post. See more information on WebMD about Sitting Disease with even more ideas on staying active throughout the day.
We received such good response from this posting, including some from members and fans of JustStand.org. While not affiliated with Life Line Screening, their message is positive, and we wanted to share with you so you could check it out for yourself.
Stay proactive about your health!
