why be active at work?

why be active at work?

Work is a big part of our lives! Those in employment spend 60% of their waking hours in the workplace. Making some simple changes and being supported by your employer can have a big impact on your health.

Time is precious. Building some physical activity into your day will boost your energy levels and an active lunch break will make you more productive in the afternoon. We are also busier in our private lives and often don't find time to do exercise in the evenings or weekends so by having a more active day, you lessen that pressure.

It can be easier than you think - for a start, just move more! Either by taking stairs rather than the lift, having walking meetings, getting up to make a drink - it all makes a difference. Don't feel guilty for not eating your sandwich at your desk, get outside and have a break. We are here to help support you with some advice and guidance and have created a service package for employers.
