Keep Active with These Moves While Working from Home

The Doctors

So many of us are still working from home, which means we are getting fewer daily steps, less overall weekly activity, and spending too much time sitting.

The Doctors remind you that sitting for too long can increase someone's weight, along with causing high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels.

The World Health Organization recommends that adults get 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of moderate to vigorous each week, and working from home can make this goal difficult, but The Doctors have the at-home workouts and exercise suggestions that can help keep you moving and provide you with a break from your home desk (which might actually be your couch!)

Missing your barre class? Christa Rost from Fit Forte shares simple and effective moves to help tone your body from home and this workout could be the perfect lunchtime break or something you start or end your day with.
