It’s Monday and I know you’re busy. This feel-good wellness tip will only take a minute 🙂
Last week we focused on how a simple, 10-minute walk could jumpstart your exercise program. (If you’re a new Monday Minute follower, click here to get up to speed.)
This week, we need to tackle the fact that we often spend the rest of the day sitting on our butts—-AND IT’S KILLING US!
But what if there was an easy, fun, and effective way to MOVE MORE, and DO MORE during your day?
A healthy, productive day sounds like wellness heaven, right?
I discovered the Pomodoro (Italian for “tomato”) productivity technique—and an app to go with it—-a couple of years ago. While the technique was not designed to prevent death due to “butt chair syndrome,” it can be a healthy side effect of its productivity focus.
Here’s how it works (I’ll make it quick because I’m running out of time!)
Simply WORK when it says WORK, then GET UP AND MOVE during your breaks.
No cheating! You gotta move for the 10-minute break and get your butt back in the chair to work when it’s over. (Aerobic scrolling through your Facebook page doesn’t count!)
Do the math: 3 hours of focused work and 40 minutes of feel-good moving around.
It’s wellness genius if you ask me!
My minute is up and you have places to go and wellness to seek. I’m in . . . are you?
Feel good. Be well. Meg
