I'm a full-time software developer and, though I love what I do, it is slowly killing me physically and socially.
I'm a physical, loud, animated guy, but there's really no outlets for that in this line of work (as far as I've found anyways).
I know there small 'office chair' stretches and exercises that I can do, but I feel those just barely address the issue. Furthermore, they feel highly contrived and they're a bandaid-solution to the problem; I want to fundamentally change how my job works to make it more suited to me rather than constantly be fighting just to counteract the negative effects of my highly-immobile job.
I've begun to more-frequently walk to coworkers' desks to ask questions, which does address both physical and social improvement, but there's only so many times in a day where that's appropriate before it starts to simply waste time.
So in your experiences, what are some steps that one could take to improve such a situation?
EDIT: Furthermore, is this something I can/should approach my superiors about? More worryingly, is this something that I would have to consider seeking a different work environment for entirely?
