There is increasing evidence that remaining seated for too long is bad for our health regardless of how much general exercise we do.
The attached Alert (either at the end of the printed version of UK News or in the download section of the website) outlines the health risks and provides some tips on how to keep active. Also attached is a new CEMEX flyer providing tips on exercises that can be done in the office.
If you have a job which means you sit down for more than 30 mins at a time, try and take ‘active breaks’ every half an hour. Just get up and walk about for 2-3 mins to help your metabolism going again, or do some simple stretches to reinvigorate your circulation.
Please share these materials with Teams as appropriate to raise awareness of the need to take regular exercise.
