When @ work...

India Today - - LEISURE -

If you work in a noisy open-plan of­fice, pay at­ten­tion to your body. Jaw, shoul­ders tense? R-e-l-a-x

Have a healthy snack around 11 am or 4 pm, say, pump­kin or cran­berry seeds, both rich in pro­tein

En­sure your com­puter screen is at eye level and your el­bows and arms are on one even plane

Have com­plex carbs and pro­tein for lunch, say, red lentils, a serv­ing of salmon or egg, two cups of salad

Pro­longed sit­ting causes obe­sity and ill­ness. Get up ev­ery hour, take a walk, stand when talk­ing on phone

While sit­ting, hold left side of chair, bring right arm over your head, lean to the left. Switch sides, re­peat

41 MIL­LION INDIANS SUF­FER FROM OBE­SITY, WITH THE COUN­TRY RANK­ING THIRD AF­TER U.S. AND CHINA. OBE­SITY HAS GROWN FROM 16% TO 29% OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS IN CHIL­DREN AND ADO­LES­CENTS
