If you follow us on Instagram and Facebook, you’ll have seen posts during our #FitFriday about how we, the staff, stay active. They’re not so much about exercise regimens as they are about simple choices. Staying active doesn’t need to involve a trip to the gym or even carving out your schedule but rather finding a place during your day for some movement.
Whether it’s biking or walking to work, taking the stairs, parking in the back of the lot to walk, or even some at-the-desk stretches during the afternoon, making the choice to stay active doesn’t have to require enormous willpower. For our staff, finding time for activity was the most common obstacle. Busy days, after-work obligations, and unpredictable circumstances can all throw a wrench into our best intentions. So the trick is to look at your routines and figure out where you can squeeze in a few minutes of activity. Set up reminders on your smartphone or leave yourself a post-it reminder at your workstation to hold yourself accountable.
