Youu2019ve heard it before: Sitting is the new smoking.
New research finds that even if youu2019re active, logging eight hours a day on your rear end in front of the computer can shorten your lifespan. Fortunately, there are other ways to spend less time sitting. Try these 10 tips to cut time in your chair:
1. Use the gym at work:
If your company has one, use it, especially if the weather is bad or work in an extremely secure building thatu2019s hard to leave. A moderate 25-minute walk on the treadmill wonu2019t leave you sweaty enough to require a shower, but it will let you catch up on an episode of your favourite TV show while youu2019re at work. Even without the extra steps, thatu2019s an incentive right there.
