Why Take Mini Workout Breaks?
Many professionals like Avi Chiat enjoy taking small workout breaks during their workday.
Every 60 to 90 minutes, people will get up from their chair to do pushups, squats, lunges, stretching, jumping jacks, or some other physical activity.
The reason for these breaks is more than merely fitting more exercise into your day.
They give your eyes a rest from the screen, your brain a recess from work, and your back/neck an intermission from sitting.
You can even download several apps designed to remind you to take mini breaks from work. Stretchly, for example, will give you customizable tasks that you can assign workouts to.
