Exercise of the Week 

Moving Throughout The Day

 

Moving throughout the day can help to prevent chronic disease and premature death. Since prolonged sitting can lead to increased blood sugars, harmful levels of fatty acids, and chronic inflammation, it is important to break up periods of sedentary behaviour with physical activity. We recommend moving for 2-5 minutes every hour.
 

You can break up your sitting by walking, taking the stairs, doing bodyweight squats, skipping, or anything else that allows you to move.
