How to Move More When Life Requires You to Sit Still

I just got back from the most amazing weekend.  I was in Chicago with my business coach Sandi Krakowski and 22 other business owners for a Mastermind conference.

Even though I loved every second of the meeting this weekend, my body was sore from so much sitting both in planes, trains and automobiles on the way to and from Chicago and also in the meeting itself all day Saturday.

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the fact that sitting too much can kill you and I definitely felt its effects after this weekend.

Remember that the main take-away from that post was that we are designed to move and we sit too much, even if we exercise everyday.

Sitting too much is not the same as Exercising too little. So keep exercising, it’s benefits are amazing, and find more ways to get your body moving too.

I have decided to share with you some really great tips to incorporate more movement into your everyday life, especially if you have a job where you sit for many hours in a row or if you are often in a vehicle of any kind on the move. Remember to move more, sit less.

Check out this 4 minute video and then get your body moving!

In fact, you should stand up and give yourself a little wiggle and a stretch as you watch this video.

I was definitely working on some of the stretches I show you in the video as I travelled for 12 hours yesterday in various vehicles and airports.

Have a great day and get moving.  It’s time for a break :)

  1. Thank you Dr Peggy I need to be reminded to stretch more often. I like the pulling the knees to the chest I had not thought about that when sitting at the computer on the phone. It is crucial. We need to be reminded to brachiate more as well. Since we came down out of the trees we so rarely do that great stretch, for the back and shoulders. And…….such a great word to say.

    • Hey Robin, I’m glad you can find something practical to use in your everyday sitting life. Brachiate is a fun word and takes my back to my playground days on the ‘monkey bars’ :)
