Many companies actively encourage a healthy working culture, but this is often easier said than done in traditional sedentary office environments. So what can offices do to minimise the effects of our sedentary habits and take a more active approach to wellbeing at work?
Below are some top tops for a healthier workplace, with advice from John Thompson, CEO at User Replay, a Digital Customer Experience Management Business.
- Get out more
- Walk and talk
- Take a stand
- Get more done
An active office environment delivers long term benefits, and those that make a commitment to move and stand more, feel better and work more effectively. As According to Thompson, “Getting out of the sitting habit is something that everyone who works in an office environment should strongly consider.”
Whether it’s long-term health benefits that are important to you, or just having more energy and focus during your time in the office, something as simple as standing up can have a dramatic and lasting impact.
