Most of us will probably admit we could do with big a bit healthier, especially those of us who work in an office. Too many of us are sat at a desk from the moment we get to work to the moment we leave, perhaps with the odd coffee or toilet break thrown in.
And it’s dramatically affecting our health, with a sedentary lifestyle increasing our chances of diabetes, heart problems and even death. This infographic from JFK Binding could help you get active at work, focusing specifically on the topic of office yoga. It lists a number of easy-to-do yoga exercises you can do at work to help improve your posture, balance, mood and productivity. And don’t worry if you’re concerned about looking a little odd, as the graphic has also provided a handful of excuses you can tell your co-workers!
For those who don’t fancy giving yoga a try, there are also a number of quick fixes you can do to stay a little more active at work, including walking to speak to a colleague instead of emailing, taking the stairs instead of the lift, and working at a standing desk.
So have a read and see how you can improve your work-exercise balance.
