It is very important to try this out at-least once a day. You work all-day, right? This time, set a time to walk on toes and try to focus as much as you can. In this workout, all you need to do is, carry a pair of heavy item or object, and then hold them each at your sides at arm’s length.
Now raise your heels and walk continuously for about 1 min.

This you need to do with the help of Swiss ball. Firstly, lie down face-up on the floor, bent your knees and your feet flat on Swiss ball (no ball is fine). In this movement, raise your hips up, and form a straight position from your shoulder to knees.
