exercises and stretches for when you are sitting
You can burn 84 calories per hour just by sitting on the couch. That’s not bad (for doing nothing!) but if you take even fifteen minutes of your “sitting time” a day to fit in a small workout, you can increase the number of calories you burn, as well as increase core muscle strength, flexibility, and even muscle strength.
When it comes to chair exercises, creating a habit of it is easier than you think. The next time you sit down to watch TV, or even while your waiting for the water to boil as your fixing supper, find a steady, armless chair or ottoman and try a few of these simple exercises.
