Take a Break! It is good for you!

I recently read an article in my Alma Mater’s magazine (Go Vols!) about the hazards of sitting in your seat too much. But, here are some tips for being more active and feeling more energetic during your day: • Take a break from sitting 4-6 times a day, even if it is very light activity. • Schedule walking meetings. • Use the stairs instead of the elevator to burn calories. • Walk to a centrally located network printer. • On your lunch hour, take a walk. • Walk to your co-worker’s desk instead of IM, email or phone. • Park your car further away so you have to take more steps. • Use weights or elastic bands to exercise with during television commercials. • Use an exercise ball during commercials to strengthen core muscles. • Stand when using your land or cell phone. • Use a sit-to-stand desk or table to work from to give your body a change. These are great! Maybe you can add some of your own ideas for burning a few more calories during the day! Julie Knight
