Reduction in sedentary behaviour
Sitting for long periods leads to poor health and a lack of concentration, even when we are really active at other times. Whatever your age, sitting for too long slows our metabolism and leads to a build-up of visceral fat, which can contribute to obesity, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers.
Boost to mental wellbeing
Moving more improves our mental health, whether it's through the release of endorphins, reduction in cortisol or by connecting with others.
