Activities to Make You More Active on Your Workday

Share:






Workplaces can be stressful and even more so if it involves sitting behind a desk for long hours. Various studies have shown that sitting for long durations can take a negative toll on one’s health. Some of the health issues that one can experience include abnormal weight gain, heart complications, diabetes, etc.
One significant advantage of working out during work hours is that it brings out that feel-good effect, which in turn boosts the employer’s and employees’ work output. However, due to a full daytime schedule, most working-class people, especially those who are also parents, may find it impossible to fit in time to work out without affecting their plans.
To supplement workouts or boost performance one can use stéroides alongside eating a properly balanced diet. Other than that, there are a couple of light exercises or activities that you can partake in during your working hours to make you more active, happy and productive.
Cycling or Walking to Work
Walking or cycling to your workplace if the distance is manageable and you will arrive on time is always a good option. These two ways of commuting are excellent cardio exercises and will make you feel more energized.
You can look for other ways of making these activities more fun like through using different routes to your workplace. If you drive to work, you can park your car some distance from your workplace and walk the remaining miles.
Challenge Your Workmates
Challenging your workmates into a fitness competition during your workday can be an excellent way to help you stay active. Activities such as staircase racing, sit-ups, walking as a group, etc. are perfect and can be done during tea or lunch breaks.
Apart from the fitness benefits, group workouts are also a functional team-building activity amongst colleagues.
Use the Stairs
Ordinarily, you don’t have to take the stairs to the 20th floor. Alighting a floor or two earlier and then taking the stairs is a good way of staying active.
Create a Movable Workstation
Poor sitting posture for long hours negatively affects your body especially the back and neck regions. A fixed bicycle desk, treadmill desk, a portable laptop stand or desk at a perfect height will help you maintain a correct posture while working.
Deliver Reports or Documents by Hand Rather Than Emailing
Delivering reports or other documents to your colleagues by hand gives you a chance to move away from your desk and walk around within the office. Apart from the physical advantage, you will also socially interact with other workers seated far from your workstation.
Desk Workouts
Fitness experts and trainers have developed workouts that can be performed from the comfort of your work desk. The following are some of the workouts:
1.      Desk push-ups: Just like the old-fashioned push-ups, this is a perfect exercise for your arms.
2.      Desk dips: Facing away from your desk, hold onto the edge of the desk with your palms and with legs extended. Move down until your elbows form a 90-degree angle and then move back up.

3.      Shoulder squeezes: Squeeze your shoulder blades and hold them together for a period before releasing them. This exercise is perfect to stretch your arms and back.

  1. Hi There,

    Gasping at your brilliance! Thanks a tonne for sharing all that content. Can’t stop reading. Honestly!
    We have locations defined as part of legal entity configuration, these are marked as "Legal address" in HRMS Location form. What is the downstream/upstream impact if I choose a different ship-to location (previously defined) for this location in the shipping tab. I also wish to uncheck Receiving Site. I do not want to use this location in a Purchase Order, but don't want to cause any issues in any other process as part of the configuration.
    Excellent tutorials - very easy to understand with all the details. I hope you will continue to provide more such tutorials.

  5. Hello There,

    I love all the posts, I really enjoyed.
    I would like more information about this, because it is very nice., Thanks for sharing.

    Can you please let me know which Workday training USA calls when we run the standard oracle report 'Multiple Worksite Report for SPWL process' which is based on PYUGEN.
    As for as I know, we can check in the pay_report_format_mappings_f where report_type = (short name of the concurrent progam). But, I can not find any record for this report in this table.
    So, how can we find out the package and procedure name which calls when we run this report.
    I look forward to see your next updates.


    Many Thanks,

  6. Hello Slim,


    You make learning and reading addictive. All eyes fixed on you. Thank you being such a good and trust worthy guide.

    will like to check are there any DBI items that store the previous 'adjustment' amount for the salary components for FF. Or are there any methods/ways that I should look into to retrieve all the Workday training USA and sum it all up to have an absolute salary component amount?
    It seems that CMP_ASSIGNMENT_RGE_SALARY_CHANGE_AMOUNT[N] only stores the latest 'adjustment' amount.
    By the way do you have any YouTube videos, would love to watch it. I would like to connect you on LinkedIn, great to have experts like you in my connection (In case, if you don’t have any issues).
    Please keep providing such valuable information.

    1. Sain Bainuu,


      10/10 !!! Thank you for making your blogs an embodiment of perfection and simplicity. You make everything so easy to follow.

      I have the following scenario - I run concurrent with host program which is shell script, from this scrip I call unnamed pl/sql block. In side this block I run pl/sql procedure. I want to make output of this procedure be my conccurrent output.
      I use fnd_file.put(apps.fnd_file.output, <...>)
      with setting dir and file_name like this
      fnd_file.put_names(p_out => l_out, p_dir => l_dir, p_log => l_log);
      dir and file name I take from fnd_concurrent_requests. But it doesn't work, I get error
      ORA-20100: ORA-20100: Temporary file creation for FND_FILE failed.
      Directory &FILE_DIR is invalid, contact your system administrator.
      Action: Check that the directory is a valid directory with write permissions on Workday tutorial

      the database server node and is listed under utl_file_dir para
      So the question is - how to make it? Is there workaround?
      Thank you in advance

    now i have to create new element 'Annual Leave Plan Adjustment' .once create this element leave adjustment will store in this element ,meanwhile i have to change the code where this element will effect..

    1.I have to create new element:Annual Leave Plan Adjustment
    2.and created accrual plan : Annual Leave Plan Adjustment1 and attached above new element in net calculation.

    But while i develop query :

    pay_element_types_f pet,
    pay_element_entries_f pee,
    per_all_assignments_f pa,
    pay_accrual_plans pap
    where pee.assignment_id = p_assignment_id
    and pet.element_name in ('Annual Leave Plan Full Time',
    'Annual Leave Plan Part Time',
    'Annual Leave Plan Contract Temp',
    'Annual Leave Plan Adjustment') --- added by bhupathi on 22-4-2013 for leave adjustment
    and pet.element_Type_id = pee.element_type_id
    and pa.assignment_id = pee.assignment_id
    and pap.accrual_plan_element_type_id = pet.element_type_id workday certification
