I do! and I know how hard sitting for long periods of time can be on your body. For this reason, I like to get up during breaks and either go for a walk, or take a trip up the stairs to get some physical activity crammed into my work days. This helps de-stress and energize, making it easier to steer away from any sweet or salty foods co-workers may be offering you. But all this physical activity, and sitting around still takes a toll on my body. What’s the answer? YOGA!
