There are some awareness days that can seem like a bit of a gimmick, and others that make you stand up and take notice.
On Your Feet Britain is a campaign by getbritainstanding.org and is a great opportunity for us all to think a little bit more about our sedentary lifestyles and how we can do more for our health by spending just a bit more time standing up and moving around.
We’ve got three products in particular that could help you to sit less and move more.
Sit Stand Office Desks Allow the individual user to electronically adjust the desk height from a sitting to a standing position, increasing health and well being within the workplace.
Anti-fatigue Office Matting has a durable ‘cushion surface’ designed to make standing more comfortable.
Sit Stand Posture Stools Standing up at work for eight hours can be the norm for some workers. This range of Posture Stools are specifically designed for those that have to stand up to do do their job but sometimes need to take the weight off the feet without taking a break.
I have struggled for years with lower back pain and I know that it comes as a direct result of sitting here, at my desk banging away at my keyboard. I, for one, need to get up and walk around a hell of a lot more. Every time I go and see an osteopath or a chiropractor, I am told to walk more and sit less, so we at PARRS all say, ‘Come on Britain, Get on your feet!’
