Published a post on this topic elsewhere back in 2014 and just re-posted it to ChicagoLadyBoomerExaminer here. Below is a quick update on the subject.
According to the latest science and Fitbit metrics – moving for 250 steps (about 3 minutes of continuous movement – 5 is even better, see earlier full post) every hour you’re awake is an essential part of overall health. As my cardiologist puts it, “Sitting is the new smoking.” Read the original post for at-work tips. Then at home, put one of those cushy stand-in-front-of-the-sink mats (Wellness Mats makes some nice ones) in front of the TV and do your kneelifts or simply side step while you’re watching. Your body will love you for it.
