'On Your Feet AECC University College Community!'
Today is 'On Your Feet Britain' – a national activity awareness day that encourages people to sit less and move more at work or when studying.
It's important to reboot and energise your workplace and study habits...and get moving.
Research shows that regular movement throughout the day leads to:
💜 Better health
💜 Increased motivation
💜 Improved concentration
💜 And many, many more wellbeing and performance benefits
Make some simple changes - it’s easier than you think:
👣 Stand during phone calls
👣 Stand and take a break from your computer/reading every 30 minutes
👣 Use the stairs more
👣 Arrange standing or walking meetings / group study sessions
👣 Eat your lunch away from your desk / place of study
👣 Walk to a colleague's / peer's desk instead of phoning, messaging or emailing them
👣 Stand at the back of the room during presentations
At AECC University College we are encouraging staff and students to challenge themselves - see how much you can reduce your “sitting time” and take a walk!
