Believe me, I know how hard it is to get moving in the mornings and especially while you are at work. With more and more research coming out that sitting for extended periods of time is bad for you (some are referring to sitting as the new smoking), it's important to remember to get up and move every hour. How much you can do will vary on your workplace but even just getting up to go remove the paper off the copier or getting up to get your own cup of water instead of having someone bring them to you will help you get in those extra steps and give you an opportunity to stretch your legs and take a break from the screen.
