Wiggle your knees! Let a leg bounce! Practice lifting your heels off the floor, then toes, then heels, toes, heels, toes. Movement is key. You have to sit all day at work and school?

You can still burn up to 350 calories PER DAY by fidgeting.

It’s called N.E.A.T. – “NEAT, an acronym for Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, refers to maintenance of posture, fidgeting and other non-exercise activities of day-to-day life that burn calories.” (Livestrong.com)
