Sit Less and Get Active
Tips to sit less and to get active
Do physical activity that suits your age, fitness level and general health and those that should be avoided due to health condition.
Be active and do exercise or walk for at least 30 minutes every day.
Avoid the elevator and take the stairs wherever you are. Every step counts.
Walking 10,000 steps a day is a good starting point. Wearing a pedometer can help you keep track.
Stretch throughout the day. This can relieve tension when you have to sit for long periods of time.
Limit the time of watching TV and video games.
Aim for active play time with kids.
Turn physical activity into a social event. Go to the park with a group of friends and play.
Set a goal and make a plan – pick a time, pick a place and be active. Go with a friend to keep on track.
Challenging yourself and your activity partner will help you both meet your goals.
Walk around while you are talking on the phone.
Walk to a co-worker’s office to discuss an issue instead of phoning or sending an email at work place.
