Plan To Move

Do you work a desk job?

Feeling sluggish during the day? Getting up and moving can make you think faster, be more productive and efficient.

Getting up and moving allows more blood flow through your body and brain. Eating every 2-3 hours through the day, drinking enough water (see blog about water to calculate what your water intake should be) & movement will keep you feeling energized.

Set an alarm every 30-45 minutes and get up. Walk to the photocopier, water cooler, washroom or talk a lap around the office.

Healthy snacks between meals will also keep your brain alert and beat the afternoon sluggish/needing-a-nap feeling.

Here are a few desk stretches that can help you from slouching at work and moving while being seated all day.
