People are busy. Busy with work. Busy with family. Busy with being busy, Experient Health wrote in one of its latest Blog posts on its private health insurance exchange.
The latest edition in Experient Health's living well blog series, launched to help more of the community lead healthier lives as a key part of preventative medicine, detailed why "you don’t have to sacrifice your overall health for the cause of being busy," write the Virginia Farm Bureau company, based in Richmond, Va.
Experient Health offered tips specifically designed for busy people.
"If you have a sedentary job where you are sitting all day, take breaks to get up and walk around," Experient Health wrote. "Do a few squats while you are waiting at the copy machine. One of the keys is to try and keep moving even if your job requires you to be sitting down all day."
Additionally, Experient Health encouraged readers to use all the time of the day, even sitting at a desk, to "chug those eight cups of water" recommended for good health.
Parking farther away from your workplace and walking can burn some extra calories each day, too.
"Just ensure you arrive in enough time that the extra distance won’t make you late," Experient Health wrote. "Also, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Did you know an average flight of stairs is roughly 12 steps? Throughout the day you could rack up several additional steps, which equal more calories burned."
