I don’t because I have only been working a sedentary job for around 3 months now. Oh give it time! Nope. Not today. Smart Break is helping me become more self aware about how sitting is very detrimental to my health. Being an athlete, I automatically think that this job wont harm me solely on the fact that when my sedentary job ends my soccer job begins. Wrong! I was still sitting for majority of the day. Even though I struggle running around the field trying to kick a ball, I still sat for a long work day. Did I say struggle on the field, ehem… I meant, dominating at all aspects of soccer while still having flawless hair and composure?
Throughout the work day you still need to be conscious about your health.
What I am trying to say is that you shouldn’t think extra curricular activities can cancel out a daily dose of sitting. Don’t get me wrong, you should be exercising and moving outside of work, but also during the work day. If your place of employment doesn’t have a wellness program that they offer, don’t get discouraged, it is easy to find one and even stay mindful about moving on your own. Of course it would be better if they have Smart Break in their workplace, but i’m not judging (my nose is growing). Try not to get dead butt syndrome. I hope everyone has a productive Friyay and even better weekend!
