Strategies to move more and sit less at the office

Sitting for lengthy and uninterrupted periods during a working day has been associated with poor health and chronic disease in office workers. To counteract the negative effects of prolonged sitting, guidelines recommend that office workers gradually work towards standing and moving for two to four hours during an eight-hour working day (halved for part-time employees). Interchanging between standing, moving and sitting throughout the day helps maintain a flexible balance, which is optimal for employee and organisational health in the long term.
