5 Things Office Workers Need To Do Every Day
If you’re like most people nowadays, you probably work at a desk which means you spend a decent chunk of your day sitting on your butt. This is no fault of your own as technology has evolved, allowing us to work smarter, not harder. The days of back breaking work with our hands are behind us for the most part.
But this also means the days of getting plenty of movement and indirect exercise are behind us as well. Since computers handle a majority of our workload nowadays, our bodies aren’t subject to much manual labor anymore. This is good from a convenience standpoint, not exactly good from a keeping us healthy standpoint.
You see, our bodies CRAVE movement whether you like to admit it or not. Human bodies are designed to move, and when they are deprived of that, issues pop up in the form of tightness, nagging pains, or any other number of less than desirable outcomes. This makes working at a desk less than ideal from an ‘optimal health’ point of view.
But this doesn’t mean you need to switch careers and become a construction worker. All your body needs is some simple TLC every day to keep it working like it should. And these movements are a great start.
