If you can stand and still see your monitors (do your job), you could try marching in place--high step, not just shuffling your feet. I typically work 10 hours straight (no lunch break) so, when at all possible, I stand, bend, stretch, clench and release muscles, shoulder shrugs, arm rotations, neck rolls, ankle and leg flexing, and anything else I can manage, including fidgeting. I may not burn a ton of calories, but I am working on muscle tone and keeping blood flowing. I had a pulmonary embolism in the past and am vigilant about not sitting 'still'.
