If you have ever or are currently working a desk job, you know how hard it is to get up and move during the day.
It can be stressful to hear and see research supporting the idea that “sitting is the new smoking” especially if you spend 98% of your work day in front of your computer.
Half of our employees are on their feet all day and very active, while the other half are tied to their desks with theraband. Kidding. But they are sitting for a huge portion of their day which can be problematic. Just ask Stacey from our Green River clinic.

The Get Moving Campaign
Stacey wasn’t the only one struggling with sitting at their desk all day, so we decided to implement the movement jar, company-wide.
Some of the exercises in the movement jar included a 30 second wall sit, 30 squats, 30 wall push-ups, drink 8 oz water and step outside for 5 deep breaths of fresh air, theraband monster walks.
As a result, our employees say they were able to focus better, had less pain and there was an overall increase in well being and work productivity.
The Get Moving Campaign was a simple, fun way to get the blood flowing and combat the “sitting disease” in our offices.
Now it’s your turn!
