Keep Moving, Stay Healthy!

It's now official: your desk is slowly killing you. Medical reports state that you should get up and
walk around or at least do some stretches once every hour to counteract the strain on the
circulatory system that is caused by sitting.

Many companies are becoming proactive in this area in order to cut down on health care costs.
Standing desks, bouncing chairs, under the desk steppers, and walking breaks are all being
integrated into the workplace, as are gym memberships and exercise classes. The results are
slowly coming in, and they're surprisingly good: even though the employees who took a ten
minute hourly exercise break worked less minutes per hour they were more productive than those
that stayed at their desks!

It will take longer to understand the long term health benefits in a corporate setting but the
projections are good. It's expected that work exercise will have the same effect on overall health
as we get when we exercise regularly off the clock: lower heart rate and blood pressure, higher
oxygen levels, and a drop in hypertension, cardiac disease, and diabetes.

If you're in charge of HR at your company it's a good idea to contact your health care carrier and
open a discussion about this topic. See what perks they offer as employee health incentives, and
start integrating them into your workplace. Talk to your coworkers and superiors about the
benefits they'll see from regular exercise sessions or hourly walks, and start making it a part of
your company policy. It'll take a while to see the results, but if you're like the companies used in
the test cases you'll see nothing but positive reactions.

If possible, it might be insightful to set up a system that will allow you to look back in a year's
time and compare data. You should at the least be able to see if production is up and sick days
are down, both easy indicators of an effective health program. This should be a key factor in
promoting future improvements in your company's future exercise programs and perks.
