Work it Girl!

Almost everyone is trying to find out ways to stay active at work. We've seen everything from jumping jacks on the hour every hour, to offices with treadmills placed right in front of computers.

For some less embarrassing ideas try any or all of the following:

The easiest way to get an extra workout at work: Take the stairs! Everyone should know where the nearest stairs are in your office building anyway, so use them.
Wrist work: Stretch a rubber band using all of your fingers, then over 2 or 3 fingers.
Inner thigh work: Place full water bottle (or anything similar that is not breakable) between your knees and, keeping abs in, squeeze bottle gently. Repeat several times throughout the day.

I find that actually going and finding coworkers I need to talk to, rather than sending off an email, works wonders, too. Those quick visits add up, especially when they're on another floor! And a twenty minute walk at lunch is awesome! And you can eat your lunch in a park, rather than indoors.

I had a meeting in a building and I took the stairs, and there were signs, like when you got to the floor you were going to, and went through the door there was a sign and it was "Yeah!!! You took the stairs!" lol. ~Procrastinate Now! Don't Put It Off~ (Ellen)

This is so true. Taking the stairs as opposed to the escalator is one of the little things you can do thru out the day that is beneficial to your health!
