Never sit longer than 30 minutes at a time
Sitting at a desk in the office puts you at risk of chronic back pain, health experts have said. Therefore, learn to stand for some time after every 30 minutes. This would, of course, help you to burn some calories and improve your posture. Walking around too will enable you to stretch your muscles. Many have also recommended the frequent movement of the arms and legs, the neck and the wrists and even the rolling of your eyes to boost your metabolism. While talking on the phone, reading or watching television, try and move your arms and legs as well.
