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
