Sitting in a chair all day can wreak havoc on the body. Unfortunately, people with desk jobs clock eight or more hours in their cubicle. You can easily get sucked into your work, and before you know it, a whole afternoon has gone by without a single trip to the water cooler! Over time, this sedentary lifestyle can lead to health consequences like mental fatigue and weight gain.
The good news is you don’t have to pump iron in the gym for hours to stay fit. Plenty of exercises can be done in 60 seconds or less right at your desk. You don’t need space, equipment or tons of time, either. All you need is yourself!
A few simple exercises each day can reduce your risk of chronic illness, banish stress and make you more productive at work. Put some energy back into your 9-to-5 with these easy, discreet desk exercises.
