      Ditto. I sit all day at my desk and my joints start to hurt when I get up. Thankfully I have to get up often to walk to the printer so I get a little bit of movement. But I definitely need a reminder to move around if I’m not printing something at work!

    Great list! I try to go for a short walk every few hours and also make sure to get up and stretch every hour. I’ll have to use some of the other great suggestions from the list!

    These are great! I do many of these already. I work on the third floor and always take the stairs. I park at the back of our parking lot, even though there are sometimes closer spots. I have a packet of things I’ve printed from online about desk/cubicle exercises and I even brought my old foam roller into work, plus a towel so I can get some stretching/rolling done between calls. People think it’s weird, but they all enjoy the roller! LOL

      Good for you. I work on the 3rd floor of my building but rarely take the stairs. It’s totally lazy of me, I know….

    “Desk leg lifts”… I though you said desk lifts. LOL!
    I do need to get up outta this office chair and stretch hourly. I’ll make that my goal for everyday next week.

    Love it! When I worked in Chicago, I used to bike 2 miles to the train station (even in winter if there wasn’t too much snow!) and then walked the mile to my office after I got off the train. It was 6 miles every day!

    Now I have to drive to work, and I miss all that activity. I love the “play like a kid!”

    Hope you are having a great weekend!
