“Get up offa that thing” – it’s On Your Feet Britain Day!

24 April 2015

Today is your chance to get the ball rolling and take a stand. Team up with colleagues and see how much “sitting time” you can reduce. The On Your Feet Britain Challenge dares you to take James Brown at his word and convert ‘sitting time’ to ‘standing time’. Find out more at the Get Britain Standing website.

It can be easier than you think, if you follow some simple changes:

  • Stand during phone calls
  • Stand and take a break from your computer every 30 minutes
  • Use the stairs
  • Have standing or walking meetings
  • Eat your lunch away from your desk
  • Walk to your colleague’s desk instead of phoning or emailing them
  • Stand at the back of the room during presentations
