With summer winding down and a lot of us getting back into the swing of our routine, it also means we are getting back to sitting.
As the colder months approach, it's important to be aware of the potential for increased sedentary behavior during this time of year.
So what's the game plan for staying more active as the days get shorter and shorter?
Find an indoor workout you actually like to do.
What did Marie Kondo say? If it doesn't spark joy, don't bother—something like that. No matter what time of year it is, find a form of movement you're actually excited to do. Fitness shouldn't be a punishment; you'll be more likely to stay consistent if you enjoy it.
Create a dynamic workspace for yourself.
Give yourself the freedom to stretch out, sit, stand and move while you cruise through that to-do list (we can help with this, btw).
Break up sitting time.
Whether you're working from home or enjoying a cozy evening by the fire, make it a habit to take regular breaks. Stand up, stretch, or do a few simple exercises to keep your body active and prevent prolonged periods of sitting.
Staying active during the darker and colder months helps prevent seasonal depression, anxiety and weight fluctuations.
Let's carry these good summer vibes straight through to next year!
