Sitting kills. Multiple studies now support that sitting is the new smoking, with people who sit too long having a 54% increase in heart attack risk.
Even though most of us spend multiple hours on our desk chair every day averaging 9.3 hours of total sitting a day, there is light at the end of the tunnel: Taking frequent breaks at work, to get up and walk or stretch, breaks the vicious sitting cycle and reduces the brutal effects of sitting on our longevity.
That’s why I have created the Office Exercise & Stretch app. I did it to help myself get up from my chair more often — because I too sit for multiple hours a day! It’s available on Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fitnessreloaded.office_exercise_and_stretch_pro&hl=en) and Windows 8 (http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-us/app/office-exercise-stretch/7afa2033-1171-4f2c-8119-e1f11669cee5).
In today’s episode I included 7 stretching exercises from my Office Exercise & Stretch app to do when you need to take a break and get some extra energy at work.
