Stay Active at Work
Answering e-mail, talking on the phone, sitting in meetings -- desk jobs don't typically entail much movement. To combat this, walk to confer with a colleague rather than sending an IM, stand while on the phone, take the stairs rather than the elevator. You can also do exercises while waiting for a meeting; try wall sits (strengthen your quadriceps by putting your back against the wall and sliding down as if sitting in a chair). You don’t always have to discuss business in a conference room, either. Suggest a “walking meeting” and brainstorm with colleagues while taking a walk. You can always record notes on your cell phone.
