Fitness Tip for Thursday, February 3

Take A Break!

Sitting for longer than 30 minutes at a time can have a negative impact on your health and your longevity.

Whether at home or at the office try to take a short break every 30 minutes from sitting. As little of an effort as standing, walking around the room once and re-seating can be enough. Taking a break from sitting helps to open the front of the hip, allowing better return of the venous blood from the legs and helping to re-oxygenate the lower body. Taking a break from sitting also helps to prevent the stiffness that can occur from prolonged sitting.
Inspire your office to fitness! Be the first to start taking 30 minute breaks from sitting.
