In spite of the tangible benefits in looking after your most important asset (your staff) including lower absence rates, increased productivity and improved employee engagement; feedback says TIME is the biggest barrier to progress when is comes to wellbeing programmes.

WHY 10,000 daily steps?

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

I view this (walking 10,000 steps a day) as a basic requirement for good health, like drinking enough water each day. Your body is designed for movement. Many researchers are now starting to emphasise the importance of walking (low impact, low intensity) and spending less time sitting.

The Ultimate Bedtime Routine to Help You Sleep!

Why a good bedtime routine should be top of our daily to-do list

There’s no question that most of us aren’t getting enough sleep. According to the Sleep Council nearly half of us are getting just six hours sleep or less a night.

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.

How scary is that? Did you have to read that fact again because I certainly did!
