SafeWork NSW has just released a new video about the dangers of being sedentary at work and ways people can move more and sit less.
On average, Australian adults spend an estimated five hours a day being sedentary which can lead to health effects including lung stress, reduced blood flow, poor mental health and even some cancers. The good news is, there are some easy ways to get moving at work.
The release of the video coincides with SafeWork NSW’s internal commitment to move more and sit less. Their Executive signed a pledge to encourage workers to be less sedentary at work with not-for-profit organisation Bluearth. Standing or walk-and-talk meetings, face to face exchange rather than email and sit/stand workstations are just some of the ways we’re ‘losing the chair!’ Make your own pledge by visiting this link: http://www.movemoresitless.org.au/make-a-pledge/ and view the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYdvh_lngME&t=10s
