Nudge Benefits

There are so many health problems associated with being sedentary, including increasing risks of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and some forms of cancer. These risks can be reduced by staying active and moving frequently.

Standing up, moving and taking the stairs will also increase concentration and alertness, as well as off-loading the forces placed on joints. It is the simplest way to boost circulation and change the position of the forces placed on the body.

TIP: Think about all the tasks you have to do at work. Could you do any of these in a standing position or whilst walking?

Take opportunities to move more.
