More Ways to Give Up Being Sedentary

Committing to sitting less and moving more will take a bit of getting used to. Your body was designed to move, and you'll likely find it feels more natural over time than does sitting for long periods. While moving at work is important, also consider the time you spend at home in front of the computer or television. An option at home is using a Swiss ball for a chair, as it keeps you moving and balancing while sitting. Consider using it an...d bouncing while watching television.

Consider purchasing a wearable fitness tracker to keep you accountable for your daily step goals. A tracker may also give you feedback on the quality of your sleep patterns, also important to your overall health.

Wear your fitness tracker for a week to get a baseline of how much you usually move, and then set reasonable goals you can increase each week until you reach 15,000 steps a day, which should be over and above any other exercise. Other simple ways of increasing your physical movement during the day include:

•Commit to drinking 8 ounces of water every hour at work. Keep the water away from your desk. You'll stay hydrated, get up for water and will have to walk to visit the bathroom as well.

•Organize your office so you have to get up to reach files, the telephone, printer or any other frequently used office equipment.
•While sitting, keep muscles activated and engaged by maintaining proper posture. This reduces back pain and muscle fatigue during the day. Consider an upright chair without armrests or cushions. The chair will force you to sit upright and shift your weight more frequently than a cushioned chair.

•Set a timer as a reminder to stand and move for at least two minutes every 30 minutes. You may walk, stand, stretch or to a few simple exercises by your desk.

Healthy Muscles Matter
