Fitness and desk jobs ๐Ÿ˜

How to manage fitness when you have a desk job or sedentary life-style .

Even I used to work for a IT firm before and that time I was able to manage my workouts and clean eating habits.So I thought I can share some of the tips which i used to do I am sure a lot of us are struggling with the same So here you go - ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Walk a few extra blocks during your daily commute. If you take public transportation, consider using a stop that is a few blocks away from your home, so that you have to walk to take the bus.Do the same on your return journey to get several minutes of exercise daily. If you drive to work, park your car at the furthest spot and walk to the entrance. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Get out of your chair every 30 minutes or so and walk around for a couple of minutes. If you want to talk to a colleague, go to his desk instead of making a phone call or sending an email. If you need to move around in the building, take the stairs instead of the elevator. ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿฝ Check your posture and ensure that you sit erect with your shoulder back. Avoid hunching or bending at the desk. You can perform several simple stretches and exercises throughout the day on your seat. Stretch your neck by looking up, down, left and right. Roll your wrists, ankles and shoulders every hour or so. This will prevent conditions such as the carpal tunnel syndrome. Watch What are you eating ? ๐Ÿฅฆ Stay away from the vending machine and bring small snacks to work. Some healthy choices are apples, baby carrots and fat-free yogurt. Cravings are common, especially in the afternoon. To combat the cravings and avoid overeating. ๐Ÿฅฆ Drink plenty of water throughout the day and refill your bottle or glass by walking to the refill area. This keeps you alert and hydrated throughout the day. Water also makes you feel full and prevents premature hunger and cravings. Tip:- If you don't have too early shifts then do morning workouts before heading off to work, minimising the likelihood of skipping evening exercise sessions. I hope it was useful. You can also comment any other topics if you want me to create any other posts which will help you guys. Thanks for reading.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’ช
