Celebrate Worldwide Stand Up Days!

Several years ago, most of us weren’t aware of the dangers of sedentary lifestyles and prolonged sitting. Today, we know that many people – especially office workers – sit almost 10 hours a day, which is too much. Regular low-level movement is healthier, so switch from sitting to standing every 30 minutes or so.

To remind us to sit less and move more, engage with one of these upcoming stand up awareness days:
