Mini workouts throughout the day are extremely beneficial to your health, posture and wellbeing, especially as we are becoming more accustomed to office based roles. Unfortunately this environment also comes with tight spaces, curious onlookers and clothing that often causes restrictions in movement, making these workouts slightly…limiting. Other factors such as lack of motivation, distractions and simply the fact that you may forget to schedule this into your day can also stand in your way.
It is advised that we take an active break every 30 minutes as the average UK adult spend 7-10 hours a day sitting! NHS
Pre-planning your active breaks
Pre-planning will encourage you to set goals and monitor your progress. Be creative and take your interests into account, if you make these breaks something to look forward to, you are more likely to stay on track, rope in your desk buddy or create an office competition for those who want to make a difference to their day. Your could even practice self-discipline i.e. only allow yourself a biscuit with your coffee if you have taken a certain amount of steps.
Mini Tips and Tricks
Here are some little tricks that will help you incorporate additional steps into your daily routine:
- Take your rubbish to the next bin along
- Use a smaller glass for your water, incentivising you to get up and refill it every time it empties, try to time this to fit in with the ‘every half an hour’ guideline, then as you get used to doing this you can also focus on increasing your water intake
- Take the stairs over the lift
- Walk the long way around when heading to a meeting room
- A break from your chair everytime you reach a certain goal i.e. every 10th email.
