If you are the average office worker in Australia, you will be moving, on average, 3,000 steps a day, and you are likely to be seated for more than 2 hours at a time. 3,000 steps might sound like a big number, but considering the recommended minimum is 10,000… we’re not doing too well, are we? You can Get Healthy At Work – and you can get healthy on the way to work, at lunch time and after work. Simply by walking more. Moving regularly.
In September you could walk 10,000 steps each day AND help raise money for Cerebral Palsy – everyone wins! Join me in Steptember; the program challenges you, and your team of four, to take 10,000 steps a day for 28 days – and the best part – it’s for a good cause! Raising over $4 million for kids and adults with cerebral palsy last year alone, Steptember is the perfect excuse to get away from your desk—not even your boss can argue with that! 😉 In fact, get your boss to champion the whole business into challenging each other – walk as teams, have walking meetings, and all the time you can be getting health at work AND helping a good cause.
They say that sitting for long periods of time causes health problems equal to that of smoking. This is a way that you can get moving, support the community and have fun doing it…
Will you step up to Steptember? I have, and I can’t wait to see how many people we can get on board this year! Visit Steptember for more information.
