Stretch Your Legs!
Walk over and talk to your coworker instead of sending that email. Researchers in Australia recently found that getting up every 20 minutes or so for a short walk-as short as 2 minutes-immediately reduced overweight office workers’ blood pressure. The researchers suggest these mini-breaks from desk-sitting may help maintain low blood pressure over time, which protects your heart.
Extra Credit: Get outside for some real air – even if if it’s rainy! Fresh air and ANY daylight, helps increase our happy hormone (serotonin). A 10 min walk after lunch 5 days a week will decrease your comfort food cravings and your pant size!
