Prevent strain and pain (get up and move)

You may have heard the "sitting is the new smoking" analogy and scoffed at the idea that sitting too long would have such a negative impact. But studies show that the risk of sitting too much or standing in the same position too long can have some serious impacts on your health.

Get up and move

The good news is, whether you sit or stand for work, something as simple as taking breaks and moving throughout the workday not only impacts your general health, but can do a lot to prevent pain, strains and injuries at work.

Use our "Get up and move" series to help promote movement and stretching in your workplace.
