4 Your Health: Exercising at your desk; saving babies electronically

Tucson: Electronic health interventions may help improve infant sleep safety.

A new University Of Virginia study followed a group of new mothers who got frequent email and text reminders about safe sleep practices for infants.

Those moms were less likely to place their babies on their stomachs, use soft bedding, or share a bed with an infant, than those not enrolled in the program.

Exercising at work

Working at an "active" workstation is unlikely to affect an employee's job performance.

Researchers at Rutgers University tested 58 people as they used desks with attached treadmills, bikes or ellipticals. Some workers did score lower on planning tasks but they were able to stay focused and multi-task while moving.

During each 50 minute session of low intensity walking, the workers got nearly half of the 10,000 daily steps recommended to keep you healthy.
