WHY 10,000 daily steps?

Is it all it’s cracked up to be? Yes it is!

Getting the Sedentary Office moving again!

It’s time to SIT LESS and STAND MORE!

Did you know that british people, sit for 8.9 hours each day (on average)? In recent years research on Sedentary Behaviour has increased dramatically and there is growing evidence that a multitude of serious health risks may be connected to “prolonged” and “excessive” sitting.

Sedentary Behaviour science is still emerging, however the evidence to date is compelling. A variety of studies warn that sedentary lifestyles are likely to be causing as many deaths as smoking. How scary is that? Did you have to read that fact again because I certainly did! I am passionate about wellbeing and making a positive difference to people’s lives and that fact scared the hell out of me and certainly it motivates me.

Incredible Results From Walking 30 Minutes A Day!

Taking a 30 minute walk a day is sort of like that proverbial apple: There’s a good chance it’ll keep the doctor away!

The benefits of walking are well documented. From helping you lose weight and de-stress to lowering your blood pressure and reducing your risk of many chronic diseases. Regular walking is one of the best and easiest things you can do for your health. WHY? – because walking is very easy to do, requires nothing but a pair of comfortable shoes, and has tremendous mental and physical benefits. It is one of the most effective low-impact ways to positively alter your body composition. Daily walking increases metabolism by burning extra calories and by preventing muscle loss; increasingly important as we age!
