Most people in employment spend 60 percent of their waking hours in work, so healthy habits in the workplace can make a big impact on staff wellbeing. Increased physical activity levels can help to combat a number of issues faced by businesses including; absenteeism, presenteeism, staff turnover, poor productivity, and poor team cohesion.
Extended periods of sedentary time can have a detrimental effect, not only on the body, but also on the mind. Even short bursts of physical activity and breaks in sedentary time can boost your brain function and immune system, reduce the risk of chronic health conditions (such as cancer, hypertension and diabetes), improve your mood and energise you. For further information on the impact of physical activity on the body and mind, you can view our infographic by clicking /cms/resources/body-and-mind-infographic-2.png
