The more time we sit still, the worse the effects, such as greater risk of diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers.
But there is good news. Even a little regular movement can make a big difference.
The Active Communities programme is designed to help us all make small changes to our daily lives such as;
- sitting less
- standing often
- moving more throughout the day
From now on, think of it this way. Every time you sit less or move more, it makes you just a little bit healthier by;
- improving circulation, bone strength and muscle usage
- burning calories
- increasing energy levels
- reducing the damage of sitting for too long
- making you feel good
