Thanks for the great article! :) Report
Great Information. Report
As a call center worker, I have to say this is probably the best article I've read on the subject. Most say to walk/stretch every hour (hard to do when you're tethered to your desk via headset) or to get a standing desk (the company refuses). Thank you! Report
Great article. I printed for a reminder!! Report

No matter what you think, no matter how you feel, the truth is you CAN do this. Report
When I started working the 3am to 11am shift, I gained 30 pounds. I was able to knock off 5 pounds and have been holding steady at 275. It is a great list for normal people. But the list isn't for sick people, poor people, or depressed people. Or people like me who have all three. Report

I manage to sneak in exercise by commuting on my bicycle (it has assist because I have a disability that might cause me to suddenly not be able to pedal anymore). I don't use the assist unless I absolutely have to. I chose to find a place to live within 30-45 min biking from my work and doing the commuting this way helps me use some of the commuting time in exercising, it helps me feel better in the morning and when I get home I don't need to worry about having to get to a gym. But if you have a super long commute, maybe you can get a bike to bike to a further bus stop or have your car or your ride share pick you up and park the bike there? I find if you use lots of locks and especially a mix of them (not only a U lock or only a big cable but both) the risk of it getting stolen (especially an old and maybe painted bike) is very small.

I can work out til the cows come home, I can not eat right. I get stressed and go straight to the carbs... Chocolate, bread, wine..name it. THis is sabotaging my diet. Any suggesting? How do you deal with the stress of the day ?? Report
It's helpful if you can prevail on your company to begin a wellness program. Report
