Burn Calories at Work

Spending hours a day sitting on your butt is not a great way to remain healthy or—more importantly—look good naked. But immobility is usually necessary in order to be productive at work. Here are a few ideas to get around this conundrum:

Walk-and-Talk: If you need to meet with someone in your office, suggest taking a stroll around the office (or even outside) while you talk. It's got the benefit of being free, plus you'll both be free of distractions like email pings. But it's not so useful if you're going over a document—or if your colleague refuses to get out of his chair.
