Workout at your Workstation!

Are you sitting down? Don’t! The health benefits of standing as compared to sitting while you work are enormous:

  • Sitting less may help you live longer
  • Standing may decrease risk of diabetes and cancer
  • Standing strengthens your muscles more than sitting
  • Small movements you make while standing burn extra calories

So stand up, flex your muscles, or take a walk to the water cooler once every hour. If you have to take a seat, sit with healthy posture to keep your back strong and pain-free.
