“Movement throughout the work day just might save your life!”

The Sedentary Shift

Today, as a follow-up to last week’s podcast episode on the importance of “moving your ass,” I discuss ways you can improve your health through focusing on movement throughout the day.  We spend approximately 1800 hour in the office each year.  The work world has become more sedentary.  We exercise our brains more than we flex our muscles to get a job done.

Moreover, our personal time has also become more relaxed with modern convenience and technology filling our entertainment needs.  We no long have to go places to connect with others, when our social world sits right in the palm of our hand.

It can be argued that our health has taken a detrimental hit from a chronic lack of activity, both at work and at home.  In fact, some have said that it is actually killing us!

Tips and Tricks

Weight change should not be the goal; it only causes an “activity/inactivity” yo-yo.  Instead, we should focus on sustainable motion.  Daily activity spread throughout the day promotes physical strength, circulation, decreased stress, and a forward thinking attitude.  In today’s episode I suggest several tips to stay on track:

  1. The use of  wearable tech
  2. Frequent physical movement
  3. Spending time outdoors
  4. Backing away from an excessive achievement orientation
  5. Avoiding the “Netflix Couch Trap.”
