Exercises and Other Health Tips That Make You Feel Better During Workdays

Tomi Kokko is a health influencer and professional personal trainer whose passion is to help people achieve lasting, healthy lifestyle changes. For Tomi, those changes come through a combination of several factors; ranging from nutrition to exercise and one’s attitude towards life in general. Equally important for him is that you need to find your own optimal ways to improve your wellbeing, and this is something he emphasizes in his lectures, personal training, blogs and vlogs. This is one of the reasons why Tomi is also an Oura Ambassador, and very interested in tracking his own daily wellbeing.

We had a chat with Tomi about two very common challenges that many Oura community members face: how to stay energetic during workdays, and how to avoid long periods of inactivity at the office. The four short videos below summarize Tomi’s thoughts and tips.
