We all know. A desk job can suck your well-being out of you if you are not taking care of yourself properly. It is very hard to stay healthy when you have a sitting job unless you have a home exercise program to go to.
It is not about your fitness as all that sitting is slowly costing you your overall health.
When there is a lack of physical activity, then it further resonates into various diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and colon or breast cancer.
Desk jobs today are becoming very common in our modern schedule. Those jobs are also important to take care of our necessities.
Well, is there any way through which you can stay healthy while being surrounded by a sedentary lifestyle? How can you find a balance between the desk job and your well-being?
It is indeed going to take some work but it is not impossible.
You need to follow some extraordinary ideas that can help you to fit into this extraordinary lifestyle.
We need to change and that begins from the point where we start to change ourselves. Physical inactivity is the fourth biggest killer of the modern world. This has been overtaken by obesity.
It can happen easily without even realising it. Most people are spending at least 8-10 hours a day sitting at their desks and working. Some of us are even spending more than 18 hours a day working in front of the computer.
We all go home via public transport or through our vehicles such as cars or bikes and that too even sitting. There is so much sitting involved and very less activity and thus is no surprise how it can happen to you.
The adjustable desk and the standing desk are all the same thing. They allow you to work at the desk while you are standing. Have you ever thought of working like that?
You are going to find an improvement in your circulation and posture as it is going to alleviate the effects of sitting.Even standing for a few hours a day is very good for you.
You need to ensure that if you are using an adjustable stand, then it is a great fit according to your height.
We all get comfortable when we are working for long hours in the office. If you are not standing up, then you adapt to move your legs and keep them toned without having to leave your desk. This can be very helpful if you don’t want to be seen moving too much in your office, right?
Well, you can perform the leg raises under the desk. If you want to level it up, then you can wear a strap and lift your legs while you are working.
You must try to do work tasks that enable you to be active. You can scrap the idea of meetings in the boardrooms and take it outside while walking. It can be used if you are having a meeting on a call, then you can roam around your office only if you do not want to be seen outside the office premises.
It can help your body move and you will be clocking in your 10,000 steps every day. This will be very beneficial for you in the long run.
It is very easy to let the elevator become a part of your daily routine and very hard to skip it. But nothing is impossible. If you find yourself using the elevator too often, then you must try taking the stairs because they are going to take care of your health, unlike the elevator.
Try to park far farther away from the building so that you have to walk to your office.
These little decisions are going to add up more to the physical activity and will put you on a healthier track.
You must try and take time out to start a home exercise plan if you do not have the time to hit the gym. The HEPs from the physical therapist can help you achieve your goals and take them seriously.
They are going to plan a goal for you that is necessary for your body type. The plan will also include activities that you can follow seamlessly without having to put in too much hard work.
If you cannot jog, then the therapist is going to find you the best possible way according to your preference.
They are also going to guide you on how to embrace a more active work-from-home lifestyle when you are working from home. What’s better than that?
Although life can get in the way of your health goals and workouts, we need to be conscious enough about our schedules and what we are putting in our bodies. Small things that you add to your schedule might feel small in the start but in the long run, are going to benefit you immensely.
Staying active and moving at your desk job is the way to start it.
