Get Up From Desk Every 30 Minutes to Reduce Back Pain
I have a desk job. My doctor recommended I get up every 30 minutes and walk around. I first tried setting an alarm but that didn't work. I'd turn it off and keep working. Someone suggested drinking a lot of water, tea, or coffee. This works. It forces me to get up and walk to the restroom every 30-60 minutes and it’s an “alarm” that can’t be ignored. I definitely see a difference.
