Research has linked prolonged sitting with a number of health concerns, from obesity and higher blood pressure to an overall greater risk of death from cardiovascular disease and cancer. The good news is that incorporating more movement of any kind into your day can have a profound impact in reducing those risks.

In this interactive webinar, we’ll demonstrate some simple, light activities you can do to move more during your workday, whether at home or in the office. You’ll learn the latest research on the health effects of inactivity and health benefits of being physically active. We’ll cover simple stretches that can relieve tight muscles and explore easy ways to add cardio and strength exercises in 30-minutes or less. You’ll walk away with the motivation and tools you need to make small, achievable changes to bring more movement into your daily life.

Please wear comfortable clothing that allow you to move and join in the action.

Note: This webinar is only available at the scheduled date and time.

Instructor: Jerrie Thurman, MA, is a senior wellness program manager with the Stanford Health Improvement Program and a wellness coach for Stanford BeWell, with 35 years of experience as certified fitness instructor.
