Workplace Walking Ideas: Walking breaks and walking groups

Are you regularly stuck between four walls and a desk? How about stepping out for some fresh air? The National Physical Activity Guidelines recommend that adults participate in at least 30 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity, preferably everyday. You can achieve this through short ‘snack sized’ bouts of activity by doing simple things like taking a few 10 minute walking breaks every day, or joining a regular workplace walking group. Here’s how:

* Banishing 3.30-itis with a daily power walk - Michelle’s story
* Lunchtime walking group a hit at work – Gabrielle’s story
* How to start a workplace walking group
* Walking group poster (you can adapt this for your workplace)
