As a general rule, we are grateful for our jobs. However, one thing that you definitely don’t like about your desk job is how it has affected your health. People find it quite hard to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle while working 9 to 5. And though the long term implications are scary enough (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, Cancer to name a few) the short term effects too cannot be ignored. We have 7 exercises, which will tone your midriff and can be done right on your office chair. Read on:
