JUMP UP AND SHOUT
Well, you don’t have to jump. But a bit of movement at your desk job would be nice for health purposes. Sedentary desk jobs are slowly destroying the health of cubed workers around the world. In a study commissioned by the American Council on Exercise, a pedometer on 98 workers in ten different occupations found that secretaries took just 4,327 steps, teachers 4,726 steps and lawyers 5,062 – all far short of the 10,000 estimated steps required for good health. Try standing the next time you’re on a phone call, it can be an effective way to fight the (office) bulge.
