Sitting too much is absolutely detrimental to our health! -Taking frequent breaks throughout the day to move and stretch “movement snacks” is a great habit to get into.
-Try not to sit for 50min of each hour. Take a break and walk outside or some other movement.
-Prioritizing walking and other moderate movements- gardening, housework etc counts! You don’t have to go to the gym to keep moving.
-The more you move throughout the day the more energized your body will feel.
Movement "snacks" are a great way to add more movement into your day. Simply tying an activity to a behavior can help. Some examples could include: every time you walk in the kitchen do 10 pushups or keep a pull-up bar or kettlebell in a central location and do some KB swings or pull-ups every time you walk by..... get creative!
We are all busy, but there are so many ways to add a little movement frequently. It starts with being mindful and intentional while building sustainable habits. If you are interested in help and support in this area please don't hesitate to reach out about my programs. I'd love to hear from you. :)
