Why sitting still isn’t good for you
Adults aged 19 to 64 are advised to try to sit down less throughout the day, including at work, when travelling and at home.
Tips to reduce sitting time:
Stand on the train or bus.
Take the stairs and walk up escalators.
Set a reminder to get up every 30 minutes.
Place a laptop on a box or similar to work standing.
Stand or walk around while on the phone.
Take a walk break every time you take a coffee or tea break.
Walk to a co-worker’s desk instead of emailing or calling.
Swap some TV time for more active tasks or hobbies.
