Fighting the sedentary office life

1. Use an exercise ball to promote good posture, but also use it to actually exercise.
2. Every walk to the printer is an opportunity to do lunges.
3. Hand-deliver your responses to colleagues’ emails.
4. Attach Velcro weights to your phone to beef up your arm strength.
5. Take the stairs—continuously—until you break a sweat.
6. Sit cross-legged at board meetings to get a good hip stretch.
