Keep it Moving
Working from home on a computer each day really takes some motivation to get moving sometimes. How easy it is to continue working as the time flies by.
I have found over the years though, that just sitting is not the way to go. The legs can only take being in one position for so long - then they get twitchy.
So, I have learned that before the twitching starts, I need to get up and take a walk around.
Perhaps the laundry needs to get started, or I need to refill my water glass, water the plants, or just take a minute to step outside the door for a breath of fresh air.
Just five to ten minutes every hour or so really makes a difference.
I feel more attentive and awake when I return to my desk and keyboard.
The blood is flowing, the legs certainly feel a lot better, and the attitude has improved also.
Of course this is in addition to the daily exercises and scheduled walks that I try to accomplish.
By nature we are an active species - all these modern conveniences rob us of the activity that has kept past generations in a more fit condition.
Time for me to go stretch the legs again and get the blood flowing.
Keep it moving - it's nature's way!
