Work It Girl: Take a Break, or Two, or Three . . .

If you find that you sit at a desk for hours upon hours without any breaks you should really think about allowing yourself a few breaks throughout the day. New research has found that the number of breaks from sedentary activity positively correlates with lower waist circumference, lower triglycerides, and lower 2-plasma glucose (aka blood sugar) scores.

No, I'm not trying to get you fired from your job by telling you to take three or four lunch breaks. They don't have to be anything too crazy or take up too much time, a break could be as simple and light in intensity as standing and stretching. Trust me, I know it's easy to get caught up in work but a few small breaks could do wonders for your health — and your sanity.
