Did you know that getting out of your chair for a few minutes three times an hour will help you stay healthy, feel energised and make you more productive, too? Give it a go with these easy tips!
1. Set an alarm on your phone or computer at regular intervals to remind you to stand up.
2. Drinking a large glass of water every hour not only keeps you hydrated, but also means you’ll have regular toilet trips. Once you’re up, you may as well make the most of it by heading for a restroom on another floor, taking the stairs up and down.
3. Craving a caffeine hit? Turn it into a quick excursion by taking a brisk walk to a local café, rather than heading to the communal kitchen.
4. Clean up your act! Smarten your surroundings at every opportunity – resist the urge to procrastinate, and head off to wash up cups as soon as they’re used. De-clutter and wipe down work surfaces, and shine up your computer screen daily. Every little bit counts!
