Increasingly inactivity and a sedentary lifestyle are being described as “one of the biggest” challenges in health by experts.
On Your Feet Britain …
Get Britain Standing is a campaign to grow awareness and education of the dangers of sedentary working and sitting more than 4 hours a day. This year it partnered with the British Heart Foundation charity to run a new event called On Your Feet Britain on 24th April. The event hoped to encourage workers to take the opportunity to stand and move around more. It is called on people to embrace ideas such as standing meeting or standing desks.
Some tips to unglue yourself from your desk
As a London osteopath with two busy osteopathy clinics in London W1 and London N2 & N10 I treat many patients who spend a significant amount of their working day glued to their desks.
If you are finding yourself glued to your desk then here are five simple tips that may help you break the habit of sitting for too long periods and to stand up and move around more:
• Eat lunch away from your desk
• Take a break every 30 minutes and stand up and get a drink of water
• Use the stairs instead of the lift
• Walk to a colleague’s desk instead of phoning or emailing
• Stand up when you are on the phone
