Q. I work in an office and I am sitting most of the day. I work out 3 to 4 times a week, but I want to know if little spurts of movement throughout the day makes any difference at all?
A: Yes they do! Here are some ideas to keep things moving: Walk or bike to work; stand while talking on the phone; eat lunch standing up; take brief, 2-3 minute breaks for brisk walking, stretching, or stair climbing; trade your office chair for a fitness ball; store fitness equipment in your office like resistance bands or tubes and dumbbells; organize lunchtime walking, running, bicycling, or yoga groups. Most of all, have fun!
