Get Off Your Seat and Up On Your Feet

Published on 2/9/2018

By simply getting on your feet (and away from your seat), you may be taking an important step towards helping safeguard your health.

According to the Mayo Clinic, sitting may have a number of harmful effects on the body, including obesity, increased blood pressure and abnormal cholesterol levels. An analysis published in the Annals of Internal Medicine reported that prolonged time sitting may be associated with increased incidence of heart disease, Type 2 Diabetes, cancer and even death.

Need a few ways to get off your butt? Check out these ideas:

Park that car. If you’re driving, it’s a given that you’re on your duff. Mix up your routine by walking or cycling around town instead, which may be great ways to sneak in exercise and see your community from a different point of view.

Work standing up. There’s a reason why stand-up desks and treadmill desks have gained popularity: they get you on your feet!

Multi-task TV time. Next time you are watching TV, add in an activity that doesn’t involve sitting such as stretching, yoga, cleaning, cooking or other non-sedentary tasks. Bonus: you can check a couple of chores off the list!

Walk and listen. Pick up (or download) an audio book from your local library and go for a walk. For some audio book fans, this medium may even be better than TV because it encourages you to get outside, exercise, use your imagination and learn new things. Plus, you can discuss what you’re “reading” with friends afterwards.

Make it social. Start a walking group or arrange to go to the gym with friends. By making "walking dates" or scheduling workouts together, you’ll get to catch up with friends while doing something healthy at the same time. And your active pursuits may be contagious!

Track it. Using an app, pedometer or wearable fitness device, track the number of steps you walk each day. Set a goal to increase those steps and work toward that goal every day. By tracking your steps, you’ll always know if you should take an extra lap (or seven) around the block after dinner. Many apps allow you to connect with friends and strike up a friendly competition. That can be a fun way to motivate yourself and keep connected.

Find an active hobby. Trade in TV and computer time for something active you may enjoy like gardening, dance classes, volunteering or playing a sport. If you choose something you love, you may not miss the couch time.

Babysit. Know someone with kids (perhaps your own grandkids)? If you’re around those little energizers, odds are, you won’t give a second thought to sitting down. Take them to the park or walk around the mall, tuning into their energy levels as you go. Your butt will thank you for it – and so will the parents who got the much-needed break.
