In brief: Move frequently

Sitting makes your joints stiff.
So every half hour get up and stretch and take a quick walk around your office or desk. Bend your knees under your desk frequently.

In brief: Take breaks

You can take breaks and walk for 10-15 minutes during extended sitting hours.
You can also exercise while you are sitting. Over the counter glucosamine / chondroitin sulfate 1200 mg is helpful if taken twice a day for many months.
