We’ve all done it, it’s embarrassing for sure, it’s not good for you and you and I both know it’s gotta stop: sitting all day long, in one position at your desk at work. It’s now proven that our sedentary lifestyle has negative long term effects. Slow-to-no-moving lifestyle choices lead to the rise of chronic disease, which increases health care costs and effects productivity.
Reach Partners has been a long-time partner in the trainings and conferences offered to ND businesses to promote and build their own worksite wellness programs. The point is to influence the workplace, change the status-quo from hunching over a desk to increasing stand-up and walking meetings to ultimately change the overall health of the state and the entire country.
Today, we want to influence you. Stand up. Right now. Move. It’s because we care about you and we know there’s hope: taking short mini-breaks can lower blood sugar and benefit your entire body.
