We all know that sitting for a long period of time isn’t good for our bodies. When I get inspired to write, edit, design or schedule, it seems that nothing can pull me away from my computer screen. If you work at a desk for several hours each day, remember to keep moving throughout the day even if it’s in small increments.
SET A TIMER
Set a timer to go off every so often to remind you to get up from your computer chair. After a while, it will become routine and you may not even need the timer anymore!
Be sure to take breaks. Breaks not only allow you to get up and move, but let you refresh your mind and refocus.
GO FOR A WALK
Before you begin working take a walk around the neighborhood. The days are getting longer now, allowing for some nice evening strolls as well. Schedule a walk when the light is just right and use that time to take photographs. You’re working your body while getting some work done!
SET A SCHEDULE
Make a set work schedule for yourself including a lunch break. Use that time to get outside and enjoy the fresh air!
You know that tension you feel in your shoulders and back from sitting too long? Work it out by giving yourself a good stretch. Stand up, reach up and allow your body to move. You can even look into some desk yoga poses to do during the day.
