Let stand 1-5 minutes after every hour of work

Office workers spend most of their time sitting in front of a computer every day.

This is not good for the body in the long run. Some of the following solutions were provided by medical experts on Medical News Today.

Today, many companies have started designing work space with standing tables as part of an employee health plan. A study conducted at Harvard University (USA) found that standing can burn more than about 8 calories per hour compared to sitting. In other words, use a standing table for 3 hours to burn an extra 24 calories.

“Let stand 1-5 minutes after every hour of work,” said Sergio Pedemonte, a fitness instructor and coach in Toronto.

When sitting, you should not lean your neck forward and do not bend your back. These simple things will improve your posture, helping your spine to get better, according to Sergio.

It is also important to exercise outside the workplace. Simply walk the stairs instead of the elevator. That’s the type of physical activity we need every day.
