Prevention is Better than Cure - Movement Tips

Here are today's tips on movement:

•      Standing is better than sitting. Take a closer look at your day and find ways to stand up and/or move more.

•      Avoid sitting for longer than 50 minutes out of every hour. Stand up. Move around for a few minutes before sitting for the next 50 minutes.

•      Combine high-intensity training (HIT) and non-exercise activities like walking, aiming for 7,000-10,000 steps a day. There are even apps to help monitor this! Walking should be in addition to, not a replacement for, a regular fitness regimen. However, if you are not doing any exercise, walking is a good place to start. AVOID SITTING whenever possible.
