…Okay, now that you’ve followed both Trainer Paisley and our house Instagram accounts, we can play a little catch-up on what you’ve missed. You know how everyone is talking about the dangers of sitting at a desk all day? Standing desks are all the rage, and some people are even investing in treadmill desks that keep them walking all day long. You don’t need to go to extremes to offset the side-effects of stillness at work—you just need to get up and move your body every now and then. Try setting a timer on your computer or phone and get up to do some form of movement for a few minutes every hour. It may not feel like much, but those minutes add up through the day and before you know it you’ve put in as much time as a full workout or yoga session—at your desk! Want to get started? Here are the top 5 mobility videos Paisley has posted on Instagram over the last few months.
