October: Increase Your "NEAT" at Work
Non-exercise related activities such as wiggling, standing or talking on the phone are known as NEAT or non-exercise activity thermogenesis that accounts for much of our movements and caloric expenditure throughout the day. All those little movements are burning calories, which can really add up over the course of a day. NEAT doesn’t include the calories we burn during intense exercise such as running, swimming or aerobics.
Your work environment can influence the amount of NEAT you accumulate throughout the day. Click here for the complete article and to learn some ways to increase your NEAT at work.
