Modern working life can be very taxing on the mind as we sit at our computers all day desperately trying to hit the next deadline. However, it’s the effect that sitting down at the computer all day has on our bodies that we should really be worried about. Studies suggest that sitting down for a long period of time increases the risk of Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, some types of Cancer and even early death as well as a plethora of other health issues.
It’s time to get more active at work
Commercial flooring specialists Intrasystems, are encouraging people to become more active in their workplace with their #GetOnYourFeet campaign. The campaign includes a competition which is being run across their Facebook and LinkedIn profiles. It aims to get people moving in the workplace, whether that be by walking, running or cycling to work, having a walk at lunch time, morning yoga breaks or by pushing themselves to reach their 10,000 steps a day.
To be in with a chance of winning a Fitbit Charge 2, simply enter the competition:
- Like/Follow the Intrasystems Facebook or LinkedIn page.
- Comment a picture of yourself ‘getting active’ in the workplace (or a picture of your pedometer showing 10,000 steps) on one of their campaign posts.
- Use the hashtag #GetOnYourFeet
It’s as simple as that! The competition ends on November 30th, so you could have a brand new Fitbit Charge 2 before Christmas!
Don’t let work get in the way of leading a healthy lifestyle; take action and get active at work today; your body will really thank you for it! You can find more information on the competition including terms and conditions here.
