Schedule Short Workouts As Mini-Breaks

For those of us who work remotely or from home on a regular basis, making sure to get some exercise can be difficult when faced with the temptation to sit at a desk for hours on end. The solution is simple: schedule your workouts like you would your lunch or any other break to make sure you get an alert to get up and move around a bit.

Sometimes all you really need to remind yourself that you should get a little exercise is a reminder to take the opportunity. Schedule your favourite calendaring application for a pair of regular 5-15 minute breaks early and late in the day, and make sure to take a little time to lift some hand-weights or get outside for a quick walk around the block. The blog Dumb Little Man has several other tips to help you get some exercise when working at home, like buying your own equipment, but that won’t do much good unless you have a good way to remind yourself to use it.
