80% of women…

This is a scary statistic…nearly 80% of women aged between 40-60 are either overweight, obese, inactive or (and??) drink too much.

(Guildelines for alcohol intake is no more than 14 units per week – both men and women)

Will you make any changes to move away from that statistic?

I see about 15 people a week coaching them to improved health. The main issue with many of them is that they spend the majority of the day sitting at a desk.

How can you break this up when you have a sedentary job?

  • Lunch time walk?
  • Walking to the next block of toilets or coffee machine?
  • Walk to chat to a colleague instead of calling?
  • Take the stairs instead of the lift
  • Walking meetings
  • Stand when on the phone
  • Get a standing desk (if funds are available)
  • If you get an hour’s lunch break – 30 minutes could be spent doing a fitness class
  • Stretch every hour – minimum!!
