How to lose weight while Sitting at office

Everybody works for more than 12 hours these days; staying fit even while on such a schedule is more important. Some people sit for hours together at one place and do not work out which makes them lazy, unhealthy and they tend to put on a lot of weight. Here are some exercises for people who have such sedentary life style.

The first and most important thing to note is that you have to have a correct posture. A proper sitting position will eliminate half the problems people have who sit for long hours. Your back should be straight, your shoulders back, and the top of your monitor should be level with your eyes. If you have to look down or up, then you need to adjust the height of your screen.

Do a little stretching exercise while you are on a break. Lunch break and coffee breaks are given to relax you not just to have your lunch in five minutes and get back to your desk again. Do some stretching exercises while you have such breaks. While you sit for long hours your neck, wrist, shoulders and arms getting locked in that position for a long time. So try to relax them for sometime by doing some stretching exercises.

Do stretching exercises like for your neck, slowly flex your head forward/backward, side to side and look right and left. For your wrists, roll them regularly, around every hour or so to relax them. A good stretch for your arms and shoulders is to brace your hands on the edge your desk, each about a shoulder width away from your body. For your shoulders, roll them forward around 10 times, then backward.

Stand up every half hour to walk around a bit. This will ensure continuous blood circulation all over your body and will help to avoid the stress and will keep them from getting too strained. Take walks to the water station to refill your glass. If you are allowed to take long breaks then take a walk outside your office building, this will help you take in fresh air and will give your hands and legs a great work out.

Give your eyes some rest; they get strained while you concentrate on one screen for a long time. Every 25mins shift your focus from the computer screen and scan around other subjects in the room such as people, doors, windows etc. Take a few deep breaths; this will work on your abdomen muscles. If possible, get some fresh air in your lungs by taking a walk outside, as mentioned  previously.
