Sitting & Heart Attacks
I recently read an amazing article on sedentary jobs that said those of us who sit most of the day are 54% more likely to die of a heart attack. YIKES!
Don’t fret – as I did. Here are their top tips to overcome this fact:
1. Take 2 breaks an hour – you must get up and out of the chair. Checking messages or meditating in your chair doesn’t count.
2. Stand during phone calls – I actually like to use a headset for the phone so I can multitask, like water the plants while I talk.
3. Don’t write long emails. If it takes more than 15 minutes to email someone it’s not a good use of your time – just go talk to them or stand up and call.
4. Invest in a stand up desk.
