On Your Feet Day

Posted by ep256 at Apr 17, 2018 03:35 PM |
Join us on Friday 27 April and take a stand for workplace health

Join us for a walk around Victoria Park at 12-12:30pm on Friday 27 April. We will meet on the park at the back of the Charles Wilson Building. It’s a great chance to stretch your legs, get some fresh air and meet new people from across the university!

To help us keep walking did you know that May is National Walking Month? We will be hosting a team walking challenge across the university, challenging you and your colleagues to walk to virtual locations around the world (based on 10,000 steps per person per day). Please email staffhwb@le.ac.uk to let us know how many are in your team and your team name!

 

Please keep moving with the tips below:

  • Stand up each time you use the telephone
  • Run a lunchtime fitness workshop for the office following the office workout
  • Take regular breaks from your computer, stand up, stretch and walk around the office. Ignore the bemused looks!
  • Use the stairs
  • Have standing or walking meetings.  Take a look at some of our walking routes around our campuses
  • Have one less chair than people at meetings. Get everyone to move around with each new agenda item
  • Organise a lunchtime walk. Walk to work, or get off a few stops earlier and walk the rest of the way
