How to Burn Calories Without Even Exercising
So aside from hiding your chair, how can you log more standing hours? First, ask your company if they’ll allow you to buy or build a standing desk. If not, you can always try these simple tweaks to get off your butt for at least three hours every day and stand up for your health:
Stand up while watching your favorite fall show. It’s more suspenseful that way anyway, we swear.
Give up your seat on the bus or train. Good karma and good glutes.
Browse your iPad while standing up. It’s portable for a reason—get off the couch.
Grab a high-top table at a restaurant. Bonus: They usually have less of a wait, too.
Eat breakfast standing at the kitchen counter. You’re in a hurry anyway, aren’t you?
Take phone calls standing up. And at home, walk around while talking.
Chop produce at home (while standing) instead of buying pre-cut veggies. Plus, these are way cheaper than the already-cut packages.
Stand up to do mundane chores (like paying bills/answering emails/etc.). Chances are you’ll be even more efficient.
