Why You Should Move More While You Work
You should say goodbye to the conference room and say hello to the sidewalk surrounding your office.
Over the recent years, many researchers have found that sitting can be incredibly detrimental to your health. The way that our chairs force us to hunch, make our leg muscles nearly irrelevant, and force us to be in a sedentary position for 8 hours a day are all really bad for us. Standing desks have been increasing in popularity since these reports came out; if your business has not implemented moving around, it’s highly recommended employees and employers begin making these changes!
Why You Should Walk
- Boost Creativity – Simply going for a walk can get your creative juices flowing, and help them stay that way. If you work in a creative department, this could make you that much better at your job.
- Improves Focus & Retention – When people go into the outdoors, their bodies are able to relax and this improves their memories and increases their attention span.
- Meet Activity Goals – Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis is the energy that is expended when we are doing nothing–like sitting for 8 hours at work. Walking can help us get some much-needed exercise which could help us meet our daily physical activity requirements in a manageable way. Plus, it gets us off our butt and makes use of our legs.
- Shape the Work Culture – When two or three people start going on walks, it makes other people want to start because of humanity’s innate want to be part of a group. If you don’t like walking, your brain will trick you into liking it because of the conversations that will spark between you and your coworkers.
