Sitting is the new smoking is probably old news to you, but unfortunately, many offices haven’t done anything to help change this for their employees. No one needs to put this off anymore, and many employees are looking for their own ways to help the problem.
Whether you are the CEO/president of your company, or an employee, here are some ways to help break up the all-day sitting epidemic in your office.
Don’t Eat Lunch at Your Desk
This is such an easy habit to fall into, especially if you bring your lunch to work every or most days. While there are days that it just needs to happen to get through more work, many days it’s unnecessary. Get outside if it’s nice out and walk around a little bit, get up and walk around your office even. Most people don’t take a full hour to eat, so use that extra time before or after you’re done with your lunch to walk and move.
Start Having Walking Meetings
Yes, this will be odd to implement, but once you and your employees are used to it, walking during your meeting will be more beneficial. Not all meetings can be walking meetings, of course, but those that are just catching up, or going over something simple are perfect for walking. There is a lot of data out there that walking meetings increase creativity and productivity, so you don’t have to take our word for it!
Invest in a Good Sit/Stand Desk
There are lots of options out there to raise your computer up on your desk, or have just straight standing desks.
