Ideas to get moving

  • Having a meeting? Consider a walking meeting - or go wild and host the meeting in the Wellness Room. Do some light weightlifting with the free weights as you discuss your agenda.
  • Going up? Take the stairs if you can instead of the elevator. Bonus: It helps the environment by saving electricity.
  • Standing desks are rising in popularity on the campus. Check out this article from Healthline about the benefits of using a standing desk.
