I recently attended a course, in Glasgow; and here is how I managed to get lots of extra movement into my day.
I was 10minutes early for my train so, instead of standing getting cold, I walked round and round.
I ambled, but walking briskly you can get up to 1000 steps in 10minutes!
Sitting: The number 4 stretch is a good one - see how your clothes could be limiting your opportunity for movement?
Stretching hands on the train home. I was also stretching them behind my back - couldn't bring myself to work out how to take a photo of that 😳 Could have been a good movement opportunity though!
It seems like a lot of work but it’s not...honestly.
I managed almost 4miles walking and probably an hour or two of stretching and movement that I would otherwise have spent in a sedentary way. A pretty productive day altogether - and I was at work.
Key message here is to seize the opportunity for building movement into your day. Revisit your wardrobe and see what you could wear that would not restrict your movement; and then you can relax to eat your lunch and enjoy your evening when you get home.
Hope that helps.
