Topping days with desktop exercise
When man was a nomad, he was uncivilized but fit. Today man is an inventor and user of electronic technology, civilized but unfit. He sure has traveled through Stone Age, Iron Age to Electronics Age but the journey has left him flabby.
Like employees of AnyLinuxWork , most professionals and students rely much on their laptops, desktops et al. Most people rightly think that this makes them efficient and faster. However, what they don’t realize is that these gadgets may be weakening down their immunity system by under-utilizing their body for manual/physical tasks.
That is where, AnyLinuxWork employees beg to differ. Every five minutes, they get up and walk around. They stretch and flex parts of their bodies like wrists, shoulders, neck, back, lower back, waist, neck, thighs to extremities like fingers, ankles and toes to prevent chronic aches.
The latest on IO’s fitness palate is the guidance that they get from desktop exercise sessions. These sessions are held every week for all AnyLinuxWork employees who never miss out on a single day.
The first phase of these sessions involve enlightening the employees about the ill effects of sitting for long duration. Now they have learnt about appropriate sitting posture, which they practiced first during the exercise sessions.

AnyLinuxWork is one of the pioneers in India that have imbibed it among employees. Here are a few extremely easy exercises that we do at AnyLinuxWork.
