1) Take the stairs-

The first step you can take towards a healthy life is to avoid excess use of the elevator. Using stairs is a great way of toning your body. So choose stairs instead of the elevator.

2) Avoid sending emails, walk instead-

Rather than sending emails, you can travel through your colleague desk to provide information. A small brisk walk through desk is a great way of improving blood circulation. Due to sitting for a long duration the flow of blood circulation in the lower part of the body gets decreased which in result may lead to serious health problems such as diabetes, heart attack, stroke, obesity, and hypertension.

3) Stretch at your desk- 

Sitting in the same position for long duration and working on a laptop can cause severe back pain and a stiff neck. Thus, stretching is a great way of avoiding these distressing and debilitating conditions. Stretch your body as much as you can to prevent stiffness.

4) Take a walk break-

It is highly recommended to walk at least for 10 to 15 minutes during your break. Schedule your walk as you schedule your work. Walking also improves brain functioning and helps you get a new idea.  

5) Exercise at your desk –

When you are at your desk make sure you maintain good posture. Muscle strengthening, stretching, and short stints of aerobic exercises at your desk are great hacks to go for.
