We sit at desks all day, everyday. Meanwhile heart disease, stress, obesity and a host of other chronic conditions plague our society like never before. It’s time to start a “movement” for more movement at work!
Beyond physical benefits, a host of mental wellbeing benefits follow from getting up and moving more throughout the day. Walking improves creativity and regular exercise regulates stress and sleep. In fact, research shows that people even share more ideas when walking because their bodies are “amped.”
It makes sense that companies like Google use “conference bikes” to keep their employees moving. It improves their productivity and mental wellbeing as well, making it a win-win for all. Make both wellness and work fun by inspiring your employees to move more to boost not just their health, but also performance, sleep and relationships.
As with all Whil webcasts, this qualifies for 1 hour of SHRM and HRCI continuing education credit.
