Rise and Recharge!
We support Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute’s Rise & Recharge campaign for a healthier balance between sitting and being active at work www.riserecharge.com


According to research from Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute, sitting down at work could be contributing to weight gain and increase our risk of developing serious diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cancer. Luckily, regular short bursts of movement reduces these risks and may also boost performance.

How chair-aware is your organisation? Long periods of time spent sitting is bad for our health and bad for concentration, particularly since we often underestimate the number of hours we spend sitting in work everyday. The Rise & Recharge campaign has a free app that helps you monitor your time in the chair and achieve a healthier balance between sitting and being active at work.
Becoming a Chair Boss and leading by example is something we can all do to change the unhealthy workplace norm or prolonged sitting. If, like us, your organisation has a lot of employees who sit for long periods, use the Rise and Recharge campaign to encourage them to get up and move every 20–30 minutes for health and performance benefits.

We’re already experiencing the benefits of creating a work environment that supports people to find a healthier balance between sitting and staying active throughout the day. The Rise & Recharge campaign from Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute presents compelling reasons for developing the habit of getting up from our chairs regularly.

As more occupations in our sector call for long periods of sitting down, it’s crucial to encourage people to look for opportunities to get up and move at work. As well as reducing our risk of developing serious diseases, the performance benefits are considerable: better concentration, more energy, less fatigue.
