2- If your office is not at ground floor, then instead of using elevators, go 1-3 floor upstairs on foot. This will stretch your legs.
3- If you are planning to leave office or workspace for lunch, then go to a nearest lunch place on foot.
4- On weekends, leave your gadgets at home and go out with friends to a nearest park or public place on foot. If you get some time, involve yourself in some physical activities or games.
