Exercise & Work

My dad recently sent me this interesting and insightful article from Business Digest. It made me really start thinking about how sedentary I can easily become (even though I feel “active”).

“Here’s a tough one: A poll shows that it’s likely you spend 56 hours a week planted like a geranium. And women may be worse than men. Thanks to electronic, computerized lives, we burn 1,500 to 2,400 fewer calories per day than we did just 50 years ago. In fact, we’re so sedentary that 30 minutes a day at the gym may not do enough to counteract the effects of long hours of sitting. That’s one reason so many people still struggle with weight, blood sugar, and cholesterol woes despite regular workout routines. One solution: Frequent mini-stints of standing, fidgeting, or puttering to fire up the engine.”

So, here are some “office” (or home office, as in my case!) workouts for you to try out:
