So long office blues -- 8 ways to put a spring in your step

Overdoing it long term is not only counterproductive it can lead to you feeling run-down and despondent. Below I have put together my eight top tips to keep the office blues firmly at bay.

Day 71: Tuck Jumps

We're certain all of our readers are jumping for joy today, so it is fitting that our final exercise involves jumping!

Day 70: Water bottle posture cure

Today is posture day at the AccountingWEB fitness factory. Fitness expert Cindy Whitmarsh recommends you grab a couple of (full) water bottles for this exercise. Remember to breathe!

Day 69: Desk March

The Desk March is a way to keep in step while you work. Studies by several medical research groups indicate that people who sit at their desk all day are more likely to heart problems than those who rarely sit. You can do steps one and two of this exercise without missing a beat in your work.

Day 68: Stomach isometrics

In this exercise, the muscles in your stomach contract in the same way as they do during a sit-up. You should feel them move in as you tighten them and release to an expanded position when you relax. This exercise can be done anywhere.

Day 67: Squat

According to fitness experts, squatting, when done correctly and safely, can benefit almost every muscle in your body.

Day 66: Calf Stretch

The Calf Stretch will keep your legs flexible and relaxed during a long day at work.

Day 64: Shoulder lifts, rolls, swings

Shoulder exercises are designed to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders. They're great for warming up before a round of golf or before getting ready to do more strenuous exercises. They're also excellent as a little get-away-from-work relief.

Day 63: No Humpback

Fitness Day 62: Chair Squat

The squat is one of the best ways to tone and strengthen your lower body. You can prepare yourself for this exercise by placing a chair behind you, sitting down and standing up several times, thinking about the muscles you are using.

Day 61: Chair Yoga - Remembering to breathe!

There is nothing better than integrating Yoga into your daily routine to center and refocus you during your workday. Throughout the day you may start building tension in your back and neck, maybe due to stress or because you are working at a computer doing repetitive motion in a stationary position for long periods of time.
