Your desk is killing you and it's time to fight back with this Data Doctors Tech Tip!
You’ve heard it for years; sitting all day is bad for you, but during a crazy workday, it's hard to remember to take the breaks we need.
Think about it, most of us spend 150 hours or more sitting at a desk forcing our bodies into unnatural positions and performing repetitive tasks that stress out our muscles.
That’s where a useful web resource called FitBolt can help. Fitbolt is a browser add-on and desktop app that not only reminds you to take micro-breaks, but also tells you what to do during those breaks
Every thirty minutes or whatever interval you choose, FitBolt will pop up a reminder and also offer a quick exercise suggestion.
It’s a gentle reminder that doing a seated spinal twist or a wrist stretch or a host of other equipment-free one-minute exercises can make a big difference in how you feel at the end of the day.
Think of it as a kinder, gentler personal trainer that will never make you sweat; your spine, shoulders and entire body will thank you for it!
