Sitting in a chair all day?

Many of us have jobs that require a lot of sitting, which can get a little monotonous. Here are a few of our tips to stay productive during a day of sitting down at the office!

 

·      Stretch stretch stretch! Sitting at your desk can take a toll on your muscles, and we’ve found a fun way to fix that problem. On our Pinterest, we've found a few low maintenance stretches you can do to stretch out those muscles at your desk.

·      Monitor your steps: studies have shown that people that check their daily steps through a pedometer or even an app on their phone take at least 2,000 additional steps a day.

·      Take note of your posture: Posture is everything when you’re sitting for long periods of time. Consciously sitting upright will put a lot less strain on those back muscles and make you feel more comfortable over all. This includes leg placement- keep your feet flat on the floor and your thighs parallel to the ground for feeling the most comfortable!

·      Make a plan to stand up and walk around about every 30 to 45 minutes. Even though this seems like a lot of moving around, it will increase your productivity and get your blood flowing again!
