Move More, Sit Less is all about getting people moving more and sitting less and changing sedentary behaviours of Australians. It’s recognising that the less you move and the more you sit, you are putting your health and quality of life at serious risk.
With recent studies showing that the average office worker sits for more than 80 000 hours over their lifetime, sitting is now being described as “the new smoking”. The average Australian is now sitting more than 9 hours a day, that is more than we sleep!
As physiotherapists we can suggest exercise ideas that are good for you and your body. Or for other ideas check out the Move More Sit Less Website.
