Sit for 60, Move for 5!

Self-directed

Tags: Exercise

A 10-day self-directed get up and move program starting September 21, 2020.

Sit for 60, Move for 5!

Did you know that breaking up your sitting time and getting up to move throughout the workday can improve your health and burn 30% more calories? Reducing prolonged sitting can reduce pain and discomfort, help you feel more alert by increasing blood flow to the brain, improve overall circulation, decrease your risk of injuries and lower your blood glucose levels. Pretty good, huh?

If you work from home, it’s likely you are not moving around as much as when you worked in the office (walking across your organization’s campus, within the school building, or to/from your coworkers’ offices and desks) and are sitting a lot more while in zoom meetings. All this lack of movement can create more fatigue and exhaustion
