The Health Risks Of Sitting as Well Much At function

Switch to a treadmill workstation. It may sound crazy but it actually is possible to work on a computer (or talk on the telephone) while walking slowly on a treadmill. Doing this you can walk 5 or more miles per day and burn 500 plus calories per day. What a way to multitask!

An added bonus: Getting lots of sleep can help with weight management. When you're sleep deprived, you don't feel energized, which means you're less likely to work out and probably aren't using your calories efficiently. A recent study found that sleeping for more than 9 hours a night could suppress genetic influences on weight and favorably affect BMI (body mass index). However, getting less than 7 hours had the opposite effect. Another study found that just looking at junk food while sleep deprived activated reward centers in a person's brain - more so than those who got a sufficient amount of sleep - which could make that food harder to resist.

Take a small break for a few minutes every hour. Go over to the bathroom, go take a quick jog, or just go outside for a quick 5 minute walk. Talk to your coworkers (about work related matters so you don't get in trouble). This will shake things up in your sitting routine and keep your body from atrophy.

Instead of a traditional office chair, switch to an exercise ball. The ball-type chair encourages gentle movement throughout the day and also improves your core muscles and balance.

I marked the location of the upright supports on each shelf, two for each one. Then I marked the walls using a stud finder. Corner computer desks can be free standing or attached. I chose to attach mine to the uprights that also supported the shelves. Taking care to attach the uprights to the studs in the walls gives a much sturdier desk.

The result of Dr. Levine's input and Steelcase's masterful design is the Walkstation, a really attractive, contemporary desk attached to a treadmill. The company makes several models of treadmill and lifespan treadmill desks lose weight that are well-designed, the result of research on ergonomics and office viability.

Is there a downside? This Treadmill Desks doesn't come cheap. It will cost you around $1600. But many would say this is a small price to pay for the convenience and added benefits of exercising while you work. It certainly eliminates the excuse of "I don't have time to exercise" and when you consider the cost of a year's gym membership and the price of gas to get there, the cost of a walking treadmill desks the mayo doesn't seem so outrageous.

When you work at a movable top desk it opens up a world of possibilities. Instead of having to sit all day you get the chance to stand, perch or sit as the mood takes you. The extra movement your body gains helps keep muscles active, blood circulation boosted and a greater feeling of alertness.

What is your business, what do you do? I am an affiliate marketer. So basically I generate content and then make my money through the advertisers I add to the content.
