It's Week 2!

Log your steps TODAY!

On average, we spend 1/3 of our lives at work, according to Gettysburg College. Typically, employees spend 40 hours per week at their job leaving 128 hours. Assuming the average gets roughly 8 hours of sleep per night, that brings us to 72 hours of "free time" during the week. Fitting everything into your day can be extremely challenging. Why not knock out some movement while you are at work?

Moving at work has many beneficial outcomes:

  • Increased blood flow to major muscle groups and the brain
    • Which promotes alertness, creativity, and problem solving
  • Increased energy
  • Improved mood
  • Higher metabolism
  • Improved posture
The University of Michigan recommends moving for at least 3 minutes every hour.
  • Remembering to move may be the hardest part. Here are some tips:
    • Set an alarm or appointment on your Outlook calendar
    • Use an alarm or a timer on your watch or mobile device
    • Use your clock as a reminder - move every time the minute hand is on the 12
