Sitting for hours has proven hazardous to our health. According to the American College of Sports Medicine being sedentary, regardless of hitting the gym for an hour a day, are at risk for a host of diseases . With looming deadlines and endless meetings, office goers have a difficult time remembering to take small breaks and stretch or take a short walk — smoking breaks do not count.
A new software program has come to the rescue. “The Movement” reminds you every hour to take a break. Each break is only 3 minutes long and you don’t have to leave your desk to do them. The stretches are a bot simplistic but the reminder to exercise for a few minutes is in itself worth the money($20/year).
