Striking a balance between Sitting & Moving

Striking a balance between Sitting & Moving

The key to a healthy lifestyle lies in finding a balance between sitting & moving. Consider integrating short breaks of movement into periods of extended sitting.

Incorporating movement into daily routines, such as taking the stairs, and walking during phone calls, can contribute to overall well-being. The goal is to transform movement from a task into a habit, promoting a lifestyle that supports both physical & mental health.

So, whether it's standing up from your desk, going for a walk, or embracing an active hobby, remember that every movement counts towards a healthier, more vibrant you.

CURATOR'S NOTE

This book is a journey of paradoxes, where simplicity meets complexity and clarity dances with ambiguity. In “Of Two Minds," we embark on a profound exploration of a century's worth of choices—choices that are not merely binary but exist in the enigmatic realm of oxymorons.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
