If you’ve lately been feeling exhausted dealing with a 24X7 schedule, you’re not alone! Most of us hardly have time to plan out many of our routine tasks, and out of these, fitness tends to become last priority.
However, disregarding your health is one of the worst things you can do! So we’ve put together a few ways you can actually sneak exercise into your workday with a few smart moves.
Sit on a swiss ball
Swap your office chair with a stability ball. Swiss ball help the alignment of your spine as you sit on them. Not to mention, they’re a lot of fun! The average adult can expect to burn around 112 to 165 calories per hour while sitting on a swiss ball.
Do staircase walks/runs
Ditch the elevator and climb up the stairs. Research says that walking up to 200 steps twice a day increases aerobic fitness levels by 17 percent, and can burn anywhere around 100 to 127 calories for the average person.
Invisible Chair Squats
Stand in front of your chair and keep your hands on your hips. Squat down as much as you can without actually sitting, then slowly return to standing. You can even challenge yourself by trying with one leg!
Office Chair Leg Extensions
If you’ve been sitting for a long time, and are stuck in that position, leg extensions are the best thing to try out. Sit on your chair, with your back straight and arms at your sides. Extend one leg, flex your foot, and raise your leg until it’s at a 90-degree angle with your torso. Hold the position, and then lower your leg.
