Stay Active at Work
Mark Greenstreet Medway Everyday Active champion

Sedentary Behaviour (long periods of sitting) leads to many serious health risks. A sedentary lifestyle is likely to be causing as many deaths as smoking. By sitting less and moving more, this can help boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing risk of stress, depression, dementia and many other diseases. Here are some tips to avoid sitting: > No extended periods sat in front of a TV or computer > Stand up and move during TV advert breaks > Stand or walk while on the phone use stairs as much as possible > Take up active hobbies such as gardening and DIY > Join in Clubs and community-based activities, Like dance classes and walking groups > Take up active play with grandchildren if you have them > Do most types of housework
