You’ve Got to Move It, Move It: How to Stay Active at Work

Feeling like you are chained to your desk can happen whether you work remotely or in an office. But sometimes as a remote employee, calls get scheduled back-to-back and you just get stuck in your chair. Don’t let that happen!

Stress can run high during a regular work day. It can be even higher in our current, uncertain climate. That doesn’t mean you should get stuck in your office chair without moving all day in an effort to frantically meet deadlines or figure out how to effectively manage a remote team. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing. You have to get up and move.

Why is Staying Active at Work Important?

Multiple studies show sitting for lengthy periods can be connected to poor posture, circulation, heart disease, high blood pressure and obesity. None of that is good for you. Working remotely sometimes prompts even more sitting. Why?

During a remote work day, you might discover you can focus better and increase productivity without the usual office interruptions and distractions. Plus, since you don’t have to rush to get home, you might find yourself working later than usual or starting earlier in the morning.

What does that extra time at your desk do to your physical health, not to mention your mental well being? It’s not just physical fatigue that can harm you from sitting too much; your mental health also can take a hit.

How to Stay Active at Work

You can help yourself overcome this and stay on the move at the office or during a remote work day. You need to know how to stay active at work. Below are a few sneaky ways I’ve learned to keep moving while working remotely for the last five years.

Our deployment team extended the firm’s Windows Active Directory Infrastructure and migrated its Windows 2012 SQL Enterprise and Windows 2012 File and Print servers to Google Compute Engine. We then integrated this architecture from the office to Google Cloud Platform. This formed the backbone of the firm’s new cloud computing infrastructure.

Next, we tackled the firm’s need for data accessibility and redundancy in the event of unplanned downtime. For comprehensive backup and disaster recovery with high data availability, we installed Google Cloud Storage, which delivers real-time data protection and cold-line archival storage.

Our engineers also installed the Stackdriver Monitoring Agent for Microsoft Windows to provide more detailed logging, alerting, and reporting and used Cloud IAM to assign roles and permissions to relevant vendors, partners, and employees, and to monitor for access and violations.

Ultimately, our team worked with Cannon & Dunphy’s leadership and IT professionals to transfer 7 TB of the firm’s data to Google Cloud. The client indicated the process involved “excellent planning and service” with “superb follow through.”

At every step, this migration considered the client’s Windows platform. It now provides a secure Google-based cloud solution that supports the firm’s operating system, virtual machines and data.
