I sew a lot. sitting long periods isn't good. I set a timer to go off every 30 minutes. I get up and move about for 5 to 10 minutes. Moving can be getting water, playing with my cat, restroom break, walk outside, anything that requires movement and standing up. It helps my arthritis!!! :)

One recent discovery is: I eat when I'm tired - night time being the most intense. When I listen to my body saying "tired" and go to bed, I avoid the added calorie intake and get a decent night's sleep.102
Getting enough sleep at night helps avoid "tired" during the next day, which also prevents snacking.
