The warm summer months may be approaching but instead of having a summer break and being active outside, a majority of Americans will spend their days at their desk jobs in the office. We are sitting down more than ever before in history and the consequences of this are not pretty. Not only does sitting increase your risk of death, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, it also causes muscle pains, strains and fatigue. Whether you are obese or an active person who works out regularly, sitting for long periods of time is bad for your health.

We challenge you to incorporate movement into your everyday routine. It can be as simple as taking the long way to the restroom, walking over to your colleague to speak with them in person instead of sending an email or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Frequent movement throughout the day is the key to a productive, healthy and pain-free workday.
