National Walk to Work Day

National Walk to Work Day

19.11.2014 - Posted by Mark Stacey
Last Friday was national Walk to Work Day, an annual event that promotes the benefits of regular walking to physical, mental & social health.

To get involved a group of us took a nice 2km stroll from South Yarra Station to our Richmond office.

Our walkers - healthier, more productive and up with the office goss

Of course, the national day of ‘celebration’ is just the first step - the organisers encourage everyone to walk more in their daily lives. If you can't walk to work regularly, some other ideas to consider are:

• taking a half-hour walk at lunchtime
• using the stairs rather than escalators or the lift
• getting up and walking around your office at least once every hour
• holding 'walking workshops' instead of meetings sitting down.
