Sedentary jobs are one of the major causes of obesity and other lifestyle related health problems. I’m sure you’ve all read at least one article supported by a scientific study claiming that sitting for longer periods of time is bad for you. Yet so many people underestimate the negative effects of spending the entire day sitting in front of their computer. Sedentary lifestyle deactivates the hormone lipase and the energy from food that hasn’t been expended begins to store as fat in your internal organs. Your metabolism can slow down within 20 minutes of being inactive, so even if you do your daily workout, it won’t really make up for all those hours of consistent sitting.
The solution to this problem is quite simple. Make a small adjustment to your work station so that you can alternate between short periods of sitting and standing. You can still work while standing and it can even improve your productivity, because you’ll be helping your blood circulation sending more oxygen and energy to your brain. We all know that our brain works better when you’re more active, so try your best not to sit for longer than 20 minutes at a time.
I use a simple and easily adjustable laptop holder from BrixtonBank.com that allows me to work on my computer comfortably while standing. You guys can get one for yourself for a 15% discount if you use this coupon code: ZGYM15

If you’re someone who exercises on a regular basis, you know how important it is to play music that motivates and inspires you to move. I use my wireless headphones whenever I’m putting together new workouts for the ZGYM or when I’m practicing new skills. The headphones from Archeer that I’m giving away are one of the two headphone sets I own and are perfect even for the most brutal workouts where you jump, sweat and kick ass.
