Staying Active at the Office: Twittercizing 101

Here's something I bet you didn't know: this week was National Recess Week. Recess didn't need special recognition when I was a kid (or lobbying groups to defend it, for that matter), but it turns out that more and more schools are eliminating the sacred childhood institution. That's a shame, because a little outside time improves classroom behavior and gets kids active. As many of you already know, obesity among young people is a national health crisis.

Chances are, your office doesn't have a playground. But don't fret--there's always Twittercize! Ron S. Doyle "tweets" hourly exercise assignments that you can do at work, and they all take less than a minute. (If Twitter is new to you, leave a comment and we'll get you up to speed.)  The point is, it's important to move, especially if your job is sedentary by nature. And who knows? Maybe you'll become the office Twittercize instructor!
