From the article:

All of these can be achieved in 30 minutes or less.

Move around an extra two minutes an hour.
You’ve heard the reports: Sitting all day is terrible for you. It’s been linked to increased heart disease, colon cancer, and mortality risk, among other scary health effects—it’s even been called the new smoking. But maybe you don’t need to dramatically overhaul your day, or convert to a standing desk to fix the problem. Recent research from the University of Utah Health Sciences suggests that adding just two minutes of walking (or other “light intensity” activities, like gardening or cleaning) every hour might be enough to counteract the negative effects of sitting all day. In fact, trading off these activities in place of “low intensity” activities (read: sitting and even standing) for two minutes or more each hour was linked with a 33 percent lower risk of dying amongst the study participants. Walking meeting, anyone?

Look out the window for 40 seconds.
Losing focus at work? You don’t have to overhaul your workspace or take a long break to renew it. Research published in the June issue of the Journal of Environmental Psychology showed that study participants made fewer errors and had higher concentration levels on a task after they spent just 40 seconds staring at a green roof space.
