The average UK worker spends more than 8 hours a day sitting down (whether that’s at a desk or on the sofa) and 1 in 4 of us are doing less than 30 minutes of activity a week. This level of physical inactivity is having a detrimental effect on our health, causing 1 in 6 deaths in the UK (the same as smoking!).
To encourage you to be more active at work, we invite you and your colleagues to sign up to their free Activity Tracker.
Why? Because people who are physically active (achieving the recommended 150 minutes of moderately intense activity per week), can reduce their risk of more than 20 chronic diseases, including a 30% reduced risk of depression.
Sign up to the free Activity Tracker and find out if you’re achieving the recommended 150 minutes of moderately intense activity per week.
