Try These Simple, Yet Effective Ways To Be More Active At Work #WellnessWednesday

Ladies, I get it. It’s hard to stick to a an exercise regimen when you’re juggling everything from a 40-hour work week, having social life, and balancing a family–or all of the above! Even so, that shouldn’t stop you from adding in some healthy habits to your day. If you can’t make the gym, try some of these simple tricks to help you be more active at work.

1.Take advantage of your commute. Start your day off right before you even get into the office. Try walking to work a few days a week or riding your bicycle if you are able to do so.  These are easy ways to get moving a little bit more each day and even burn off those calories from breakfast!

2.Get out of your chair, often! It’s really bad for you to stay confined to your seat, especially if you’re parked there for eight hours a day! Get up and walk around for 5 minutes every few hours. Take the stairs to get to that meeting instead of the elevator to get the blood pumping. You can also think about investing in a standing desk so that you can alternate in between sitting and standing.

3.Have a mandatory stretch break. While you may have a lot of work to do on a daily, you need time to reset. Take time out to stretch for a couple of minutes. (Utilize those yoga poses!) And if you’re looking for an easy way to help you remember to work on your posture, think about swapping out your chair for an exercise ball. There are so many quick stretches that you can do without even leaving your desk!

4.Work out during lunch. If you’re finding it hard to hit the gym before or after work, try exercising during the work day. After all, if you’re already eating at your cubicle, you may as well do something with that free lunch hour! Sign up for a gym near your office, and do a quick 20 minute session. That leaves plenty of time to shower, change, and get back to the office.

5.Start an office workout challenge. Chances are you’re not the only one in the office that wants to adopt some healthier workout habits. Try organizing an office challenge to help each other out–and maybe even find a workout buddy! Make it a team effort. The office can even chip in to give out prizes for the individuals that meet different goals over a set period of time.

Be sure to check out these healthy breakfast ideas and these yoga poses that’ll help you get flat abs.
