Juggling a career, personal life, as well as other responsibilities, often leave people with hardly any time left for exercise. Between the long commute and many hours spent on the road driving, people can barely put one foot in front of the other and move. The problem is that with everyone’s busy lifestyles, convenience has become the top priority.
Instead of going to the store to buy supplies, people order online and have their items delivered. They would also prefer to take out from fast foods and nearby restaurants than prepare home cooked meals. As a result, people have been developing lifestyle diseases. Diabetes and hypertension are at an all-time high, and this is a phenomenon that is happening all over the world.
But what if you could do exercises that tone muscles and burn fat right where you are? Yes, there are exercises which can be done at home, or in front of your office desk. You can take a few minutes to stand up, stretch, do lunges and even some light yoga. It is ideal to stand up and walk every hour to improve your circulation. It can be as simple as walking to and from the room, going up and down a flight of stairs and walking to the far end of the pantry to get water or coffee.
According to research, sitting down for extended periods contributes to problems in circulation as well as the heart. We’ve prepared a helpful and easy to follow set of exercises through an infographic, which you can do right in your chair. Read it – we want you to take the extra effort for your good health.
