Healthy Tip: Take a Break


Taking five-minute breaks--whether you sit at a desk, do heavy construction work, or anything in between--can have several benefits. Below are examples of some activities you can do in five minutes or less for rest breaks.
  • Take several short breaks throughout the day (about every hour). Make sure they include some movement.
  • Take a short walk away from your workstation.
  • Stand up and stretch or walk in place at your desk without looking at your computer monitor.
  • Get out of your chair whenever you take phone calls at your desk.
  • Change positions at your workstation.
  • Have a drink of water or a light snack.

 

Step It Up! Surgeon General's Call to Action to Promote Walking and Walkable Communities

 


If you're not sure about becoming active or boosting your level of physical activity because you're afraid of getting hurt, the good news is that moderate-intensity aerobic activity, like brisk walking, is generally safe for most people.

Start slowly. Cardiac events, such as a heart attack, are rare during physical activity. But the risk does go up when you suddenly become much more active than usual. For example, you can put yourself at risk if you don't usually get much physical activity and then all of a sudden do vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, like shoveling snow. That's why it's important to start slowly and gradually increase your level of activity.

If you have a chronic health condition such as arthritis, diabetes, or heart disease, talk with your doctor to find out if your condition limits, in any way, your ability to be active. Then, work with your doctor to come up with a physical activity plan that matches your abilities. If your condition stops you from meeting the minimum Guidelines, try to do as much as you can. What's important is that you avoid being inactive. Even 60 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity is good for you.

The bottom line is - the health benefits of physical activity far outweigh the risks of getting hurt.

If you want to know more about how physical activity improves your health, the section below gives more detail on what research studies have found.
