Encouraging Health and Happiness

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!
