I bet I know exactly why you’re here. I know why you clicked through to read this post, and I cannot wait to give you all the solutions I’ve come up with for you.
Wanna know how I know what you’re struggling with? Because I have been there! I’ve SO been there.
- hours and hours of sitting on your butt all day at an office chair as your life just seems to waste away.
- days, weeks, and months that go by where you feel more and more sedentary in your life.
- discouraging feelings because you want to live healthy and active life, but your office job is just getting in the way.
Just a little over a year, I was working in an office where I spent about 90% of my day stuck sitting in a cubicle. I thought to myself, “I have got to get out of here. I have got to quit my job and start my own business where I get to call the shots.”
I had dreams of quitting my job and taking walks every single day and not sitting for more than an hour at time. I thought that once I was my own boss, I would be so much less sedentary.
You know what happened though?
Even as a small business owner, there is lots and lots of computer work to be done, which means lots and lots of sitting. My dreams of a more active lifestyle went out the window. Yes, I’m able to have the freedom to call my own shots, but there still isn’t time to go to a gym class in the middle of the day. There’s not time for a walk around the neighborhood multiple times a day.
So even though I do have the freedom to work from home, much of the day is spent sitting in an office chair looking at a computer screen just like yours is.
I’ve had to think outside of the box in order to stay healthy even if I am confined to my desk the majority of the day.
Oh, and here’s the key point.
Just doing one of these things is where people get it a little mixed up. A lot of people think that if they just take the stairs instead of the elevator, that’s going to solve all the issues and classify you as an active person.
I assure you that you are going to want to go through all 7 tips I have for you and do as many as you possibly can. Putting all these simple and easy tips into place will help you to:
- feel better about yourself
- have more energy
- have better focus at work
- live that active life you have been dreaming of since you first sat your booty down in that office chair
They’re not hard. Doing them all is actually quite possible.
So let’s get to it.
The first one is my key to not falling asleep on the job. Because, yo, that’s embarrassing!
