Exercise snacking can solve your sitting problem 

Exercise snacking picked up steam early in the COVID-19 pandemic, when most people were stuck inside their homes. These bursts of activity do not require a gym membership or specialty clothes, shoes or equipment. And they can easily be sprinkled into the day, whether someone is working at home or in an office.The longer you spend sitting and staring at your screen, the more likely you’ll be to lose productivity or get sidetracked. Many productivity gurus recommend setting a periodic alarm that can break you out of an unproductive spell. Getting up and walking gives you additional mood and energy-boosting benefits, and forces you to physically disconnect with the situation that may be causing you to get distracted.
