Start the movement – Get moving
Regular movement can minimize muscle tension, prevent damage, ease pain, and boost your energy. Incorporate movements into your workday to increase blood flow to the musculoskeletal system and your brain. Movement breaks help with focusing, decrease the risk of repetitive strain injuries and improve overall health. Your participation will benefit your health and will also encourage your co-workers to participate in proactive health.
