Leo Sumulong and the team over at animation house, Flikli, sent us this adorably illustrated and informative animation promoting office wellness, presenting both the facts about how a seated lifestyle is ultimately detrimental for even those of us who are actively exercising daily, and what to do about it throughout the day to stave off its negative effects...
"It's been shown that those people with sitting jobs have twice the rate of cardiovascular disease as people with standing jobs.."
It's all a humbling reminder our seat-bound lives can be killing us slowly, and the paramount importance of scheduling to keep moving throughout the day (bathroom breaks are an ideal excuse for sneaking in some exercise and stretching in 10 rep increments). And there are a myriad of desk-bound movements you can practice to break the shackles of a sedentary lifestyle without even leaving the home office or cubicle; here are 10 to try right now!
Thanks to Leo and team Flikli!
