The benefits of an under-desk treadmill
There's a reason that doctors and health professionals talk about your daily step count and trying to reach 10,000 steps: it keeps you in shape, wards off anxiety and helps to reduce signs of stress.
Sitting at a desk all day can be bad for our physical health - creating bad posture, back pain and even slowing down our metabolism. So getting even just 30 minutes of brisk walking, while you track it on one of the best fitness trackers (which you can find in the Black Friday Fitbit deals) can not only improve joint mobility but also boost your immune - meaning you'll be less likely to pick up a bug.
Stress may just seem like part and parcel of life, but too much stress on our bodies can cause a host of health problems, including raised blood pressure and the possibility of heart-related diseases. However, a study by The University of Mississippi concluded that just 10 minutes of walking a day can help reduce mental strain - such as stress.
Another study even showed that just 15 minutes of walking a day can curb cravings for sweet foods such as chocolate.
