We all know that sitting all day is killing us and that getting up from time to time can correct the problem, but if you want to stay a little more active when you’re in front of the computer, there are a few exercises you can do. This info-comic, from how-to illustrator Yumi Sakugawa, offers up 11 great options.
Some of these exercises, such as the neck and wrist rolls, take little effort but can help you avoid repetitive stress injuries. Leg and foot raises will help those parts from turning to jello after hours stuck in a chair. We found that simply tapping your feet can burn up to 350 calories in a work day, so chances are you can make a lot more progress with leg and foot raises. You may want to look into sitting on a ball too, as the info-comic suggests. You won’t get a full workout at your desk or anything, but these little exercises will help you stay more active as the day goes by.
