Office Exercise Routine to Get Fit While Working
Delay in waking up in the morning results in exercise becoming the victim. Health is always the first victim of our laziness. A simple morning routine will go a long way in keeping you active and staying healthy. You can start your day with 10 minutes of breathing exercises including Pranayam. This will regulate the flow of blood and help you keep calm and stress free. Next 20 minutes of brisk walk will ensure a toning up of the overall muscle built. This can be done for few weeks till you start feeling your body needs more activity. The next routine can be including 5 minutes of jogging without and pressure on your joints.
Addition of Surya Namaskar at this point will give a chance to open up stiff muscles and create flexibility. This will again ensure a good blood flow and sweat. Sweating is a good sign as it mean the heart is working.
There is no end to the number of routines you can do but pick the most doable ones first – which you can stick to. Slowly increase the pace and intensity. Also ensure walking around in the office every 1-2 hours. Sitting on the chair for long stretches makes the body lethargic. Use stairs whenever possible. It’s the best way to avoid boring treadmill routines and get double the benefit. Stretching your hands, legs and neck will keep you less prone to aches and injuries which can be due to occupational hazards.
