The main cause of injuries and fatigue is persistent sitting in the same position. Without movement your body will stop working optimally and cause not only physical but also mental discomfort and drop in work or study performance. Therefore, adding short breaks and movement during work and play is important step to healthier lifestyle.
We recommend a one or two minutes break every 30 minutes, to stretch, or do a job that does not require sitting behind a computer.
If you need some help, you can install an application on your smartphone to remind you, when it’s time to take a break.
The main problem of the modern workplace is immovability, forced sitting, and a general lack of movement. This can be partially avoided with regular exercises, but adjustable ergonomic tables are steadily gaining popularity.
You can split the day into periods of sitting and standing. This can prevent a constant load on the same parts of the body.
