Work At A Desk Job? This Trick Could Boost Your Energy

Getting up from your desk for a few minutes at a time throughout the day could boost your mood and energy levels, finds a new study. University of Colorado researchers looked at 30 healthy adults who were typically not active during the day, and had them visit a health center three times, with each visit allowing different amounts of activity. Participants were asked about their energy levels, mood, and food cravings at several points during the day. They reported more energy on the day when they exercised for 30 minutes in the morning and on the day they engaged in short bouts of activity throughout the day, compared with the day they sat for the whole day. Additionally, on the day when participants engaged in short bouts of activity throughout the day, they reported a better mood and lower levels of fatigue and food cravings at the end of the day, compared to when they exercised only in the morning and when they sat all day.
