7. Let your phone help you out
When you’re diligently working at a desk all day, it can be easy to forget to get up and move around every once in a while. Before you know it, you’ve been seated for four hours. A quick fix: Your phone. Set your cell to remind yourself to get up and walk around, stretch your legs, and burn some calories. You can do this by setting a series of alarms throughout the day, or, as Life Hacks suggests, downloading StandApp, which alerts you once and hour to stand up and gives you some small activity to do.
