Tips to Avoid Prolonged Sitting


  • Transition to a stand up desk– I have one and LOVE it!
  • Drink enough water during the day that you will need to get up and urinate every two hours.
  • Set your watch, phone, or computer to beep at regular intervals to remind you to get up and move. If I know my day will involve mostly sitting (like when I write), I try to stand-up every hour and do jumping jacks for 1 minute.
  • Make all your phone calls standing up.
  • Keep you office trash can and office fax machine a few feet away from your desk to force you to get up to use them.
  • Strive to move during your leisure time– do not sit during times away from your office desk.
  • Limit TV viewing, and get up and move during commercial breaks.
  • Stand up during office meetings or better yet conduct meetings during a walk.
  • Walk around during your lunch break.
  • Be grateful for after work household chores that require you to move.
  • The most important times to avoid prolonged sitting are in the immediate 1-2 hours after eating.

"Wow! You were not only entertaining – you wooed the Awakening Conference participants into waking up and taking control of their health.  Awakening would have been a success if it had stopped there with your presentation! Thank you! Thank you!"
