I work in a R&D lab, but in between daily tasks there is a lot of down time which I spend at my desk, staring at my computer. I know Slashdot is used mostly by IT professionals and desk jockeys, so chances are you've all encountered the draining effects of sedentary office life: joint and back pain, weight gain, heart health risks, etc. What are some ways to counteract the negative health effects of a desk job, both during and after work?"

Honestly there is a lot you can do If you don’t mind people looking at you weird. Honestly though, I doubt you will. Best thing is to get up and wander around a lot. My boss used to pick up a random sheet of paper and wander around the office with it just so he looked like he was busy and not just wandering about. Best thing to do? If someone needs help shifting something, jump up and help, otherwise: Take up a martial art, go practice after work or on lunch in a park. Go to the gym before and or after work.
