Take a stand and get improved health
From page 10
ter throughout the day. Stand-
ing and moving just a little bit
appear to re-engage fat-burn-
We also have a lot more op-
portunity during the day to burn
calories and optimize fat me-
tabolism through standing com-
pared to the time available for
exercise. So ignore the advice
of your elementary school
teachers who told you to “Sit
still!” It may just save your life.
Suggestions to increase the
time you spend on your feet
during the day:
• Stand up and do 10 toe
raises (rise up on your toes and
back down) and stretch your
arms over your head once
• Walk over to speak with a
work colleague rather than
send an email.
• Leave the lawn chair at
home when heading to your
child’s soccer game (okay, at
least use the chair sparingly).
• Take all phone calls stand-
• Celebrate the fact that you
are able to stand, and take ad-
vantage of the opportunity as
often as you can!
