We hope you will enjoy The Happenings, Geaux AcƟve sec on. Here you will find great ps for leading a healthier lifestyle. We encourage our faculty and staff to take an ac ve approach in his/her quest for health and well‐being.

Get Up and Move! “Researchers have linked si ng for long periods of me with a number of health concerns, including obesity and metabolic syndrome — a cluster of condi ons that includes increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels. Too much si ng also seems to increase the risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer.” “What's more, spending a few hours a week at the gym or otherwise engaged in moderate or vigorous ac vity doesn't seem to significantly offset the risk.” So, what can you do? 

Set an alert to go off every hour, on your phone or email calendar, to remind you to move around.  Take regular walking breaks to help your circula on.  Bring a yoga/“stability” ball to work to use as a chair; it improves your balance and also works your core and back muscles.  Talk to your boss about considering “ac ve mee ngs;” instead of mee ng in a conference room, walk around outside and talk. Want even more ideas on how you can easily add more movement during your workday? Click on the link below from the Washington Post’s website that offers some fun and simple ways to “workout” at work. It even rates the exercises levels of difficulty, amount of sweat, and humilia on. h p://‐srv/special/health/workout‐at‐work/ “What are the risks of si ng too much?”  “A workout at work?”
