Sitting for an extended period is linked with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and an increased risk of death from heart disease and cancer.
Excessive sitting may also slow metabolism, which has an impact on the body's ability to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar, as well as break down body fat.
Injecting physical activity into your working day could reduce some of the health risks that are elevated by being sedentary.
You will go back to work feeling refreshed, revived, and more able to concentrate for the rest of the day.
Whether you go for a brisk walk, cycle, swim, or to your gym for an hour, doing exercise of any kind helps to break up your day and motivate you for your remaining hours in the office.
