Tips to help you sit less

Take frequent, short breaks from sitting. Standing or moving for 2 to 3 minutes is beneficial. Simple muscle movements are great for the body!

✅ Walk around while you're talking on the phone.

✅ Take standing and stretching breaks during meetings.

✅ Stand, rather than sit, on the sidelines while watching recreational games.

✅ Visit your co-worker to discuss issues instead of phoning or emailing.

✅ Use a standing desk, if one is available.

✅ Replace screen time with social time.
