How Much Are You Sitting?

It's day 13 of the Move More! challenge, powered by support from Humana.

Today's tip is activate your work set-up. The Mayo Clinic reports that spending too much time sitting can lead to obesity and other health problems. How can you make changes to your sitting routine at work? Try sitting on an exercise ball while you work to engage and strengthen the muscles in your abs and back. If you can, consider using a standing desk or a treadmill desk to sit less during your workday.

Let us know what  changes you can make in our discussion. Post a photo in your work set-up in our Facebook group or on Twitter or Instagram. Remember to mention @HealthyNurseUSA and tag #healthynurse.
