With close to 86% of Americans working in office jobs that require them to sit for extended periods of time, it is no wonder that so many of us suffer from aches, pains, and diseases brought on by sitting. In workplaces all around the country and locally in Houston Town and Country, personnel remain in a sedentary position for upwards of 8 hours per day. Within the first few minutes of sitting, the electrical activity in your legs shuts down, calorie burning slows down to 1 per minute, and the enzymes that help break down fat in your body drop 90%. All of this put together can increase your risk of cardiovascular disease two times over the rate of those with standing jobs.
Find the Time to MoveWhatever little movements you can make throughout the day will do wonders for reducing the pains associated with prolonged sitting. The key is to regularly incorporate this into your daily routine.
• Standing Desks are gaining a lot of popularity as an alternative to sitting. They have been found to increase metabolism, blood flow, and mental alertness. They are also easily adjustable so you can move from a seated to standing position throughout the day. Creating varied movement in your workflow has also been shown to decrease the risk of disease and chronic pain.
• Regularly take laps around your office. Whenever you get the chance, if you’re getting up to use the restroom, fill up on coffee, or just to get your muscles moving—make time to take breaks from sitting. This should help your circulation and circumvent some of the problems associated with sitting.
• If you can’t get up and walk, try doing stretches and exercises while at your desk. Even if you are seated, studies show that even the slightest bit of movement throughout the day can be beneficial. Rocking footrests and ergonomic chairs are useful tools that provide you with this range of motion without having to get up and break from your workflow.
The More You KnowKnowledge is key to avoiding potential long-term, irreversible conditions you may develop from spending the majority of your day sitting. Studies show that with ergonomic office systems you may be able to increase efficiency in the workplace and the health of your employees.
