The date may have passed for the On Your Feet Britain campaign but that is no reason to sit down again. Getting up on your feet and moving around during the working day is essential to help keep those aches and pains away as well as reduce the chances of heart disease. There are benefits from even small amounts of movement regularly during the day.

Some top tips from the On Your Feet Britain campaign are:

  • Stand during phone calls
  • Stand and take a break from your computer every 30 minutes
  • Use the stairs
  • Have standing or walking meetings
  • Eat your lunch away from your desk
  • Walk to your colleague’s desk instead of phoning or emailing them
  • Stand at the back of the room during presentations
