What could be more important than our health? Face it, we’re only as good as we feel.
February is American Heart Month. And what’s one of the worst things you can do for your heart?
While we live in a day and age of fitness clubs on practically every block, we also are spending more time sitting behind computers or talking and texting on our mobile phones. It’s amazing how fast the hours go by without our noticing it after getting absorbed in the computerized world of communications and instant information.
That’s why it’s a good idea to be mindful of the amount of time you chalk up each day glued in a chair while pecking away at the keyboard with either your digits or your thumbs. Keeping a timer on hand allows you to forget about the clock so you can focus on your work and rely on a device to let you know when it’s time to break.
Walk in place. Run in place. Knock out some push-ups. Jog around in a circle. Dance.
Do anything to move the body and keep the circulation energized.
And if you’re a chronic reader like me, be sure to take your e-reader to the gym with you or buy a Flip-clip to hold the pages of a paper book open while you peddle away.
Have a happy American Heart Month!
